Kaja’s research interests include ancient architectural theory, the relationship between public and domestic space, landscape design and garden archaeology, and expressions of imperialism in the Roman world.  She is particularly interested in the translation and replication of space.  Her secondary area of interest includes nineteenth and twentieth century urbanism and architecture.  Kaja holds a B.A. in Political Science and in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology from the University of Minnesota (2007), an MA in Ancient Art History from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst (2012), and is currently pursuing a PhD in Ancient Art and Archaeology at Cornell.  She is also a recipient of the University of Massachusetts-Amherst Distinguished Teaching Award (2011-2012). She has primarily excavated at Messene, Greece, and in the ancient Vesuvian towns in the Bay of Naples.
