Audrey Scardina (MSc FSA Scot)
PhD Student - Archaeology
Before moving to Edinburgh, I did my undergradute degree at Sarah Lawrence College in New York. After graduating, I did a MSc in Archaeology, before starting my PhD in Archaeology in January 2014. During my time at Edinburgh I have been involved in a number of organisational teams and societies.
More specifically, I was the Secretary for the Late Antique and Medieval Postgraduate Society (LAMPS) at Edinburgh for 2013/14, and President for 2014/15. I also lead the organisational team for the innagural LAMPS conference in 2015, and co-organised the Edinburgh Conference on Late Antiquity in 2016. When I am not working on my PhD, I will probably be found walking or hiking in some remote part of the UK.
