My interest is primarily in Greek history of the early Classical period, with the focus of much of my research being on the relationship between Athens and its Delian League allies in the period immediately following the Greco-Persian wars.  I have written on inscribed oaths from this period, specifically the oath between Athens and Khalkis on the island of Euboia, in an attempt to further understand the nature of Athenian hegemony in the Delian League.

Other, broader areas of interest include the history of Greece outside of the Archaic and Classical periods (including Hellenistic, Imperial, and Byzantine Greece), archaeological insights into Greek history, and numismatics.  I have an increasing devotion to understanding the way in which societies and cultures have interacted with the natural world, not only in Greece, but in the ancient world more generally.
