Areas of expertise My main research interests lie in the field of intercultural relations and cross—cultural influences between Ancient Western Asia, Greece, and Rome. My work is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing on written, art historical, and archaeological sources. I am currently working on a book entitled Spoils and Iconoclasm, dealing with the destruction of art and theft of political and religious identifiers in the first millennium BC. I am also working on the reception of ancient art and is co-organizing the conference series Imagines with Dr. Marta Garcia (Leicester) and Dr. Maria Jose Castillo (La Rioja). Imagines I was held at the Universidad de la Rioja in 2007; Imagines II will take place in Bristol in 2010.
