I am a field archaeologist specializing in Hellenistic Greece and the Near East. My research interests include domestic pottery, the process of “Hellenization” in Asia Minor, the history of classification, and the relationship between evolutionary theory and archaeology. I have participated in field projects in Israel (Tel Kedesh), Cyprus (Idalion, New Paphos), Albania (Apollonia), and Turkey (Gordion, Granicus, Avkat, Çatalhöyük, and Bogazköy). I am currently at work on the publication of the Hellenistic pottery from Gordion, Çatalhöyük, and Bogazköy. I have taught courses in Greek and Roman civilization, Greek archaeology, Latin, and myth. My professional affiliations include the Archaeological Institute of America, the Classical Association of the Middle West and South, and the Classification Society of North America.
