Max Peers' research interests revolve around spatial analysis and the interface between the built and natural environments. Peers' projects would utilize computer analyses, such as those he used in his Master's Thesis, to better understand the motives and implications behind visibility and movement in architecture and urban spaces, and how this affects our interactions with the natural environment surrounding cities. Too often is there a divide in archaeology between studies of urban contexts and the larger landscapes they are found in, and IBES offers the framework to connect these two areas. By striving for a deeper understanding of the interaction between urban and natural spaces in antiquity, one can better grasp how our current global situation came to be.
