Bio/Description

Mo is a PhD student in the Department of History. Her research concerns the interplay between changing legal landscapes and social dynamics in Late Antiquity and the early Middle Ages. She is particularly passionate about the so-called Ravenna papyri and later parchment documents from Lombard and Carolingian Italy.

Before joining Princeton University, Mo held a scholarship at the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome. She thereafter worked as teaching assistant at a primary school in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Mo completed her Bachelors in History (cum laude) and Research Masters in Ancient History (cum laude) at the Universiteit Leiden. She also loved both of her times on exchange in Scotland, first at the University of Edinburgh in 2019 and then again at the University of St Andrews in 2022.
