My academic interests range from the topography, sculpture, and vase painting of Classical Greece – I wrote my dissertation on Athenian autochthony and identity during the Peloponnesian War – to research pertaining to the provenance of Greek and Roman antiquities and the history of travel, collecting, and display of works of ancient art.

Having worked at the Getty Villa, the University of Toronto, and the Getty Research Institute, I am currently teaching an online course on Provenance Research for Johns Hopkins University’s Masters in Museum Studies program, in addition to serving as a Senior Program Officer with the National Endowment for the Humanities.
