Research fields:

I am a social historian studying Mediterranean peoples from a bottom-up point of view. I focuses on the material culture of port Jews (Sephardic merchants), dock Jews (longshoremen, contractors in cargo-handling services, fishermen, port administrators, shipping agents, financers of maritime projects, leasers of waterfront real estate, suppliers of equipment to port authorities, etc.), and Jewish artisans (Jewish niches in handicraft industries) in different parts of the Mediterranean at the turn of the 20th century—i.e., in the era of capitalism, colonialism, and the rise of nation-states.
