My interests lie mainly in classical and Hellenistic Greek history and classical archaeology, comparative study of ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern empires, and social, economic, and religious history as illuminated by inscriptions, coins, and excavations. As an archaeologist, my work focuses on the long-term settlement dynamics of Aegean Thrace: from the urbanism of the Greek emporion (port of trade) to the ruralization of early Byzantium. My articles have or will soon appear in journals such as Historia, Hesperia, Epigraphica Anatolica, and the American Journal of Numismatics. My current book project is entitled, Overnight Empire: The Attalids of Pergamon.
