Research Description

Primary field is Ancient Greek history. Interests include political, economic, and religious history, Greek epigraphy and numismatics. Past research was dedicated to understanding the development of federal states in the ancient Greek world. My current research revolves around the problem of property in the ancient Greek world. Current projects include a study of infrastructural power in Greek states; an exploration of the capitalization of Greek cities in antiquity; a study of the role of property claims and the development of property rights in state formation in Archaic and early Classical Greece; and the relationship between property and social-political inequality.
