    My primary research interests are the glyptic arts of ancient Iran and Iraq in the early first millennium BC. I specialize in the glyptic preserved on two large archives from Persepolis, the Persepolis Fortification tablets and the Persepolis Treasury tablets.

    Margaret Cool Root and I are authors of Seals on the Persepolis Fortification Tablets, Volume I: Images of Heroic Encounter, Oriental Institute Publications 117 (Chicago 2001). In addition to the documentary work represented in that publication, my research has focused upon social aspects of glyptic production in workshops in Persepolis, especially the issues surrounding the impact of individuals of high status and/or administrative rank on the development of glyptic style and iconography in the early Achaemenid period. This work has also addressed the emergence and development of royal ideology in glyptic at Persepolis, religious imagery in Achaemenid art, and the relationship of glyptic of the early Achaemenid period with earlier glyptic traditions in Elam and Mesopotamia.
