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. 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.

Alicia is the PI of Duke's project at the Roman camps near Numantia (Renieblas, Spain, 2nd-1st c. BCE), and co-field director of the excavations since 2015. 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. 

Prior to her arrival at Duke, she 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 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.
