She was a volunteer excavator at Cosa in summer 2019 and is currently a Digital Cultural Heritage Intern with the Office of Digital Research and Scholarship, where she is helping organize and upload data from the Cosa Excavations to the FSU Repository.

In her spare time, she plays guitar in the FSU Irish Ensemble and loves visiting Tallahassee parks.

 

Mathias Bishop is a double major in Philosophy and Latin and Greek. He is a member of Eta Sigma Phi, the national honorary collegiate society for students of Latin and Greek, and is coordinating the chapter's activities at FSU this year. He also serves on the board of the Augustine Society (FSU's theology club). and his primary interests in Classics are Plato and Aristotle and their impact on Christian theology. Pre-Covid, he was an avid soccer enthusiast and volunteered regularly as a chaplain's assistant at the Wakulla Correctional Institute.
