Doctoral Student in Archaeology and the Ancient World (Ph.D. expected May 2028)

Joseph received a B.A in History from Rutgers University – Newark and an M.Phil. in Classics from the University of Cambridge. His M.Phil. thesis examined the economic conditions of early and mid-Imperial Italy by examining the macellum – a Roman covered market complex. Joseph has excavated in the Sabina, Italy as part of the Upper Sabina Tiberina Project. He has also spent a semester at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome (ICCS), during which he also interned at the archaeological collection of the American Academy in Rome. Additionally, Joseph has worked in the Education department of the Newark Museum of Art, where he helped design and run tours, and taught a Roman Civilization course at Rutgers University – Newark. His current research interests include socio-economic development and exchange, cross-cultural interactions, and connectivity studies, especially at the local level across the Mediterranean. Moreover, he is interested in how microhistories can tell big stories of change attendant on empire.
