I am an epigraphist working on inscriptions from Athens, Boeotia and the Cyclades. My articles include publications of epigraphical documents that range from the Archaic to the Roman Imperial periods. I am currently one of the four senior editors of Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum (SEG), and Chair of the Sara B. Aleshire Center for the Study of Greek Epigraphy. I teach Greek language, history, and archaeology.
