I am interested in the art and archaeology of the Bronze Age Aegean, with a particular focus on Minoan and Mycenaean architecture. My research explores social constructions of space during the Late Bronze Age from an interdisciplinary perspective that integrates theoretical and methodological models from art history, architecture, and urban planning.
