After completing her M.A., Grace worked as a field archaeologist at the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center in Colorado, a nonprofit dedicated to archaeological research, community engagement, and partnerships with American Indians.
Grace's research at Stanford focuses on the archaeology of Greece in the first millennium BCE. Her dissertation investigates social differentiation and economic inequality in Geometric through Classical Crete and incorporates both household archaeology and evidence from archaeological survey.Public archaeology remains important to her, and she is co-coordinator of the Stanford Archaeology Center's school outreach program. She is also serving as the Senior Digital Humanities Graduate Fellow at CESTA, Stanford's Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis, for the 2019-2020 school year.
