He is currently an illustrator and digital epigrapher with the Theban Tomb 16 Project at Dra abu al-Naga.  His recent research projects include the scientific analysis of a Ptolemaic mummy, the study of the coffin of Ankhefenmut (an Egyptian priest of the 21st Dynasty, Bab el-Gasus cache), Egyptian Revival sphinxes, and Egyptian collections in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York.
