Michelle Fabiani is currently completing the final stages of her dissertation, which seeks to identify the underlying patterns of archaeological looting in Egypt in space and time. Using data on archaeological looting derived from satellite imagery between 2015 to 2017, she examines how broader socio-political, economic, and environmental conditions shape which archaeological sites are looted and at what times. Her dissertation serves as a starting point for understanding the broader context in which archaeological looting occurs and suggests a methodology for analyzing similarly complex phenomena. In April 2019, she will begin working as a research associate of sociology at the University of Virginia working with Dr. Fiona Greenland on the Insurgent Artifacts project. The project qualitatively examines differences in methodologies used to collect and analyze satellite imagery for use in counter-terrorism and conflict archaeology (the intersection between armed conflict and archaeology).
