He has served for 15 years as curator in the Department of Egyptian, Classical and Ancient Middle Eastern Art at The Brooklyn Museum.
His academic interests are broad and encompass the ancient near east, the Byzantine world, and contemporary art. This can be seen in his recent work and global appointments.
