She is currently completing a monograph of the role of peace in the political climate at the end of the Republic and creation of the Principate, as well as a new project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, which examines the production of space as a means to understanding diplomacy as a social practice in the Roman world.

Details Spaces for Diplomacy in the Roman World
This three year Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship project examines the production of space in order to understand diplomacy as a social practice in the Roman world, from the mid-Republic to High Empire. The study draws out the value of considering both physical and social space as a means to understanding the place of diplomacy in the Roman imagination, and therefore Roman attitudes towards their position as a political power in the Mediterranean.
