I am interested in the interaction between Greeks and 'non-Greeks' in the Hellenistic world, with a particular emphasis on Egypt and on Central Asia. My PhD (Cambridge, 2006) was on ethnic identity in the 'Hellenistic Far East' (Bactria-Sogdiana, Arachosia and India). My publications on the region include The Archaeology of the Hellenistic Far East: A Survey (2011), and The Hellenistic Far East: Archaeology, Language and Identity in Greek Central Asia (2014). I direct the Hellenistic Central Asia Research Network (HCARN: www.bactria.org).
I also work on ancient multilingualism, especially Greek-Egyptian. I am a researcher on the AHRC-funded Corpus of Ptolemaic Inscriptions project at the University of Oxford, and am involved in a collaborative project on interpreters of foreign languages in the ancient world.
