Much of my research has been devoted to legislation, the popular assemblies and the consulship in republican Rome. The project Evolution and Revolution, which I initiated as director of the Finnish Institute in Rome (2006–2009), is concerned with the development of the political institutions before the reforms of Sulla. I have also studied the augural topography of Rome, the so-called division of the Roman Empire in 395 CE and the influence of financial interests on Roman foreign policies in the Late Republic. My main project since 2014, Living with a Living Past in Late Republican and Early Imperial Rome, focuses on Roman historiography and its relationship to documents, monuments and social memory. I have, together with a British colleague, organised two international conferences in Rome on this theme (2009, 2013) and recently published the volume K. Sandberg, C. Smith (eds.), Omnium Annalium Monumenta: Historical Writing and Historical Evidence in Republican Rome (Brill: 2017).
