About: Andrew Koh

I am a Mediterranean archaeologist specializing in early Greece and its contacts with the ancient Near East. Before earning my Ph.D. in classical archaeology at the University of Pennsylvania, I majored in Biophysics and the Classics, which explains in part why I espouse interdisciplinary approaches that bridge the humanities, socials sciences, and natural sciences. Starting in 2016, I am co-director of the Mouliana Project based in East Crete. At Brandeis, I am appointed in Classical Studies, Chemistry, and Anthropology and heavily involved in the new Digital Humanities Laboratory as its co-director. At MIT, I am a faculty member in the Center for Materials Research in Archaeology and Ethnology. Every spring I help teach its annual introductory archaeological science course (3.985J, ANTH 185a at Brandeis) and regularly participate in its biannual ceramics course (3.984, ANTH 187a/188b at Brandeis).
