Currently, he is preparing a Ph.D. dissertation on the formation of ethnic (?) identities and cultures in Southwest Anatolia (Lycia, Pamphylia and Pisidia) from the Early Iron Age to Late Antiquity and their reaction to major acculturation processes such as the confrontation with Greek culture, Imperial culture and Christianity. His main focuses are Hellenistic and Roman Society, social mobility, cultural diversity in Antiquity and ancient religions.
