Alicia is Assistant Professor at the Department of Classical Studies at Duke University. Her research engages with archaeological theory and Roman visual and material culture, specifically in the western and central Mediterranean in the period 218 BCE-200 CE.

She has also carried out archaeological fieldwork at various Iron Age, Hellenistic and Roman sites in the Iberian Peninsula and Italy, as well as museum collection research at the the Römisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum Mainz.
