Reed is interested in textual, archaeological, and scientific approaches to the history of Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages.  His research focuses on migration and identity (religious, political, and ethnic) in the Late Antique Western Mediterranean, especially in the former Gothic and Vandal Kingdoms.  He will be collaborating with the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History at Jena to model Migration Period population dynamics using ancient DNA.  Reed is also interested in environmental and climate history, and has worked on temperature reconstructions using marine molluscan isotopes.  He is additionally a collaborator on the Elkab Desert Survey Project in Egypt, where he is analysing an assemblage of Predynastic lithic tools associated with desert rock art sites.
