I am co-director (with Lilla Kopár) of Project Andvari: A Portal to the Visual World of Early Medieval Northern Europe, funded by an NEH Digital Humanities Start-Up grant. My research focuses on the art of Scandinavia from the Roman Iron Age through the Viking Age. I am an archaeologist as well as art historian, and I have excavated the site of the Viking trading center Birka and have collaborated with a contemporary goldsmith to reconstruct early medieval jewelry techniques.
