  • Profile

    Pamela Jordan is a doctoral candidate at the University of Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology, where she is working on a project called “Site Sound: using acoustics to analyze Mount Lykaion’s ancient sanctuary to Zeus.” She uses sound-based methodologies to analyse ancient and contemporary built environments -- other recent projects have included places of worship, military installations, and infrastructural ruins. Her work includes architectural design practice, artistic collaborations, and archaeological fieldwork, and her research has been supported by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (DE), the HEAD Genuit Foundation (DE), the Dutch Research Council (NL), and the Society of Architectural Historians (US). Pamela is a registered architect (USA, LEED AP) and holds master’s degrees in architecture and historic preservation from the University of Pennsylvania.
