Research Interests: Development of administration and bureaucracy in the Hellenistic world.

Research Summary: My main interest lies in the Hellenistic world, particularly in the development of administration and bureaucracy from early to mid Hellenistic period (300-150 BCE). I am currently exploring questions concerning how the romance of “spear-won land” (δορίκτητος χώρα) was grounded in and realized through fiscality and day-to-day management.
