A specialist in the archaeology, art, and cultural history of Archaic Greece, I conduct fieldwork centered on Mediterranean maritime archaeology. I am particularly interested in shipwrecks and harbors as indices of maritime networks in the Archaic Mediterranean in tandem with my research on the shipwrecks at Pabuç Burnu and Kekova Adası (sixth- and seventh-century BCE merchant vessels that sank off the Turkish coast) and the harbors at Burgaz, a site associated with the Knidians before their move to the tip of the Datça peninsula. I also direct heritage preservation initiatives for the sixth-century CE “Church Wreck” at Marzamemi, Sicily, a collaborative project between Stanford University and the Soprintendenza del Mare. I currently serve as Vice President for Cultural Heritage of the Archaeological Institute of America.

My work considers the ancient economy, maritime archaeology, archaeological ethics and heritage management. Students with interests in these and related fields are encouraged to consider the Department of Classics at Brock.
