I study the economic history of late Republican and early Imperial Rome. I am the author of Money in the Late Roman Republic (Brill, 2007) and Farmers and Agriculture in the Roman Economy (Routledge, 2018).

Along with Thomas R. Blanton IV and John T. Fitzgerald, I edited The Extramercantile Economies of Greek and Roman Cities: New Perspectives on the Economic History of Classical Antiquity (Routledge, 2019) and, with Timothy Howe, I edited A Companion to Ancient Agriculture (Wiley, 2020). I am also one of the general editors of Wiley's The Encyclopedia of Ancient History for which I’ve written entries on such topics as Roman Republican Coinage, bullion, glue, and insects.

In addition to my appointment in the Department of History, I also serve as Director of the Classical Studies Program.
