Department of Archaeology





I was educated at the University of Pisa, where I studied Classical Archaeology (specialising in ancient topography and landscape archaeology) and then pursued a PhD in Ancient History (with a project on the demography of Roman Italy). My very close engagement with British academia effectively started as an ERASMUS undergraduate student at the University of Leicester, and further developed as a visiting postgraduate student at the University of Cambridge. I joined the Faculty of Classics in 2009, first as a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow, then as a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, and I was elected to a University Lectureship in 2013, becoming Senior Lecturer (now Associate Professor) in 2018.


I am is based in the Faculty of Classics as Associate Professor in Classics, Classical Art & Archaeology. Please visit my page on the Faculty of Classics for further information.
