I am a Professor of Art History at California State University Northridge, where I have taught since 2003. I teach courses on the archaeology and art of the ancient Mediterranean and Middle East, landscape art, the historiography of Art History and Exhibition Design. Since 1996 I have directed the Sinop Regional Archaeological Project (SRAP) in northern Turkey and since 2015 I have directed the Sinop Kale Excavations under the auspices of the Sinop Museum. I have published more than 40 articles, including the monograph Sinop Landscapes, Univ. of Pennsylvania Museum Press 2004, co-edited a volume on survey and rescue excavations in southeastern Turkey and a catalogue for the exhibition Azimuth-Ascension featuring two of Tunisia's leading contemporary artists, Nja Mahdaoui and Khaled Ben Slimane. I have received numerous grants in support of the work at Sinop, including two three-year grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, grants from the National Geographic Society, ARIT and other sources. He served as the G. M. A. Hanfmann Lecturer for the Archaeological Institute of America (2016-17), and has received fellowships from the NEH, the Getty Research Institute, and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
