About

As an ancient historian and archaeologist, my research focuses on expanding the narrow story we tell about the ancient Greeks by examining their overlooked migrations and diasporas, which represent–literally–the other half of their story.  I adopt a two-pronged approach: first, by paying close attention to the underlying ancient and modern historiographies to understand how this situation developed and how it can be rectified, and, second, by adopting a multi- and interdisciplinary methodology that is theoretically informed.
