Money and coinage, political organization and the sociology of money have been central to my research. The starting point has been the Greek city-states (poleis), and on how the monetary system was anchored in political institutions and decision-making processes. The symbolic function of money, as an identity marker and political symbol, has also been addressed. Urbanization and the establishment, growth and decline of cities have also been a key research topic. Through fieldwork at several Mediterranean localities, the field of interest has expanded to also include Late Roman and Byzantine settlements. The connection between holy places and the use of money is another key research area, where comparative studies from early Greek city-states, Byzantine cities and Medieval Norwegian churches are key points.

Another area of ​​interest, and ex officio area of ​​responsibility, is international trade in illicit cultural objects. I co-operate with the police, customs, directorates and ministries, and participate in consular work on legislation, guidelines and handling routines for such cases, nationally and internationally. The network includes active participation in NGOs as ICOM and Blue Shield.
