I work on Mediterranean history and archaeology, with a particular interest in the Hellenistic period and in ancient North Africa, but I’ve published articles on topics from Roman imperialism to Athenian sculpture to Numidian architecture to Edwardian education, and I’ve co-edited volumes of essays on ‘The Hellenistic West’ (with Jonathan Prag) and ‘The Punic Mediterranean’ (with Nicholas Vella), as well as the collected articles of the late Peter Derow (with Andrew Erskine). My most recent book, In Search of the Phoenicians, was published by Princeton University Press in January 2018.
Hellenistic, Phoenician, Mediterranean, Greek, Roman, North Africa and the Levant.
I am currently on research leave until January 2019.
