Dey’s research interests center on architecture, topography, and urbanism in the Latin West from late antiquity into the Middle Ages, with particular emphasis on the ideological and practical considerations that progressively reshaped the urban paradigms prevalent in the Roman period. He also works on the history and material culture of early monasticism in the western Mediterranean, and is a principal collaborator in the underwater excavations of the harbor of Caesarea Maritima in Israel. He is currently at work on a book about the urban evolution of the city of Rome, c. 400-1400.
