She has her Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology from Harvard University and has participated in archaeological excavations in Israel, Turkey, Cyprus and Italy. Her research interests include cultural and economic contacts among the ancient cultures of the eastern Mediterranean region and the early history of metallurgy, particularly the transition from bronze to iron technology and she has written three books and numerous articles on these subjects. She is currently working on the publication of East Greek pottery imported to the site of Ashkelon in Israel in the seventh century B.C. and on a larger study of imports from the Aegean to the coastal Levant between the eighth and fourth centuries B.C.
