My interests range from the history of archaeology, cultural heritage preservation, and museum studies to the art and archaeology of ancient Iranian empires, from the Achaemenids to the Sasanians. I am currently involved in the exploration of the World Heritage site of Pasargadae, the first dynastic site of the Persian empire in the sixth century B.C.


I studied history, art history, prehistory, and archaeology at the University of Lyon, France. I obtained my doctorate from the University of California at Berkeley.
