I am a specialist in the archaeology of Rome’s western provinces, and in provincial architecture in particular. I am interested on the impact of empire on the peoples of the provinces, and how it altered the routines of their daily lives. I have also pioneered approaches to the social archaeology of the western provinces, in particular gender and age. I am currently working on religious architecture in Roman Britain.
My academic interests range from the topography, sculpture, and vase painting of Classical Greece – I wrote my dissertation on Athenian autochthony and identity during the Peloponnesian War – to research pertaining to the provenance of Greek and Roman antiquities and the history of travel, collecting, and display of works of ancient art. Having worked at the Getty Villa, the University of Toronto, and the Getty Research Institute, I am currently teaching an online course on Provenance Research for Johns Hopkins University’s Masters in Museum Studies program, in addition to serving as a Program Officer with the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Mediterranean, sometime Classical, archaeologist. Currently I am researching the relationship between the ancient Romans, their volcanic landscape, and their built environment as director of the “Quarry provenience and Archaeological Dating of the Roman-Area Tuffs in Antiquity” (QUADRATA) Project. I also continue to study cult places in the context of local and regional political developments, with a particular interest in the 1st millennium BCE central Mediterranean, and am working on the architectural and ritual development of the sanctuary of Fortuna and Mater Matuta in Rome’s Forum Boarium during the Middle Republic, based on my recently completed dissertation titled “The Roman Middle Republic at Sant’Omobono.”
Pure, theories, applied, action and practical – linguistics in all its facets interests me, but I have a predominantly practical approach to my own work, which focuses on language pedagogy, and in particular the application of proven principles from Teaching English as a Second Language to satisfy the blossoming interest in learning Tibetan.
