Before joining the Harvard faculty, Dr. Georganteli taught at the University of Birmingham, where she was the Keeper of Coins and Lecturer on Numismatics at the University of Birmingham (2000–2016). A specialist in the arts and archeology of southeastern Europe and the eastern Mediterranean, Dr. Georganteli was the Principal Investigator of two European projects on Cultural Routes, Heritage, and Digital Humanities between 2012 and 2016. She uses archaeological evidence, written sources, and the changing patterns in the geography of transport to trace economic and cultural exchange in late antique and medieval Europe and the Middle East. Dr. Georganteli is Managing Editor of the Digital Atlas of Roman and Medieval Civilizations (DARMC), and the author (with Barrie Cook) of Encounters: Travel and Money in the Byzantine World (Giles, 2006), and editor (with Martin Bommas) of Sacred and Profane: Treasures of Ancient Egypt from the Myers Eton College Collection, and the University of Birmingham (Giles, 2010).
