My research focuses on the ancient Greek world and Anatolia, and I am particularly interested in questions concerning migration, mobility, and cultural interaction. My current project (https://www.migmag-erc.eu/) investigates how multi-scalar mobilities contributed to the formation of ancient Greek communities first millennium BCE, comparing narrative of migration with evidence from landscape survey for population circulation and regional mobilities. I am also very interested in the comparison of real and imagined genealogies. Since 2020 I have been a Professor of Classical Archaeology (Greek) at the University of Vienna.
