Alicia's 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. In particular, she focuses on the study of Roman expansion in the western Mediterranean, Roman colonialism, cultural change and monetization in Hispania, with a special emphasis in funerary, urban and military contexts.

Prior to her arrival at Duke, Alicia was Visiting Assistant Professor at the Department of Classics at Stanford University and Postdoctoral Fellow in Archaeology at the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University. She is Honorary Research Associate at the Institute of Archaeology and member of the Centre for Museums, Heritage and Material Culture Studies both at University College London.

She earned her PhD at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and has conducted research in Archaeology and Anthropology at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC, Madrid), University College London and Glasgow University. Alicia has carried out archaeological fieldwork at various Iron Age, Hellenistic and Roman sites in the Iberian Peninsula and Italy, as well as finds research in Museums (Römisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum Mainz, Germany, Coins from Numantia). She co-directs the excavations at the Roman camps near Numantia (Renieblas, Spain, 2nd-1st c. BCE) since 2015.
