An expert on the history and culture of the Balkans, he has spent the past decade documenting the destruction of cultural heritage in Bosnia and Kosovo during the wars and “ethnic cleansing” of the 1990s.  In 2002 and 2003 he testified as an expert witness on cultural destruction at the trial of Slobodan Milosevic before the UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague.
