Alejandro is a second-year student in the combined program in Classics and History. He graduated with a BA in Classical Languages and Literatures from Harvard University, where he wrote a senior thesis on local migration in the Arsinoite nome of Roman Egypt. 

His research interests encompass the socio-cultural history of Greco-Roman Egypt (and the broader eastern Mediterranean), with particular emphasis on migration and rural society, as accessed through papyrology.
