I am an historian mainly interested in the investigation of social and economic processes in ancient societies. I conduct interdisciplinary research on topics such as mountain pastoralism, imperial resource management, institutional landscapes, and conflict transformation. The main geographical focus of my research encompasses ancient Iran, Anatolia, and Sicily.
