My primary researched project revises the treatment of Ionia, a region that consisted of thirteen Greek poleis in the eastern Aegean, within the context of the Classical and Early Hellenistic Aegean. My work confronts a common misconception that the region was dormant along three interrelated avenues: political and diplomatic history, cultural memory, and historiography. I am currently working on a book project entitled “Accustomed to Obedience: Ionia and Ionians 494-294 BCE.”

I also have a range of additional scholarly interests that include the social and economic history of food in the ancient world, most notably bread, political and military history, and the cultural memory of Alexander the Great.
