Hi! My name is Stephen DeCasien.
PhD Student – Nautical Archaeology – Texas A&M University
I am a PhD student at Texas A&M University studying Nautical Archaeology. My academic interests are Greco-Roman maritime history and archaeology with a special focus on naval warfare, naval rams, and warships. I specialize in the study of sex and gender in antiquity, especially in relation to navies and naval monuments.
I was raised in New Jersey around the Atlantic City area. I lived in Florida for a few years to work on my master’s degree. I currently reside in Bryan, Texas with my amazing girlfriend, Alix, and our two cats, Ares and Athena. I am an avid reader and Philadelphia Eagles fan! I enjoy watching sci-fi and gangster films/TV, playing historically-based video games, biking, weightlifting, yoga, and playing sports.
