A Ph.D. student in the History of Art Department at the University of California, Berkeley, Stephanie Pearson is currently completing her dissertation while living in Berlin and working at the Pergamon Museum.

She has conducted fieldwork around the Mediterranean for the past seven years — most importantly at Pompeii — including excavation, digital mapping, and 3-D topographical survey. The wall painting in Pompeian houses and other sites across the ancient Mediterranean constitute the focus of her research. Alongside her own studies, Stephanie has also led student advocacy groups in art history and archaeology and regularly organizes colloquia for the Archaeological Institute of America.
