Doctoral student in Classical archaeology and Ancient history at Lund University.

My focus is on classical archaeology, and I have participated in several field excavations around the Mediterranean (Italy, Greece and Cyprus). I am also a member of the Swedish Pompeii Project (Italy) since 2006, which has led me to my field of research, Greeting the visitor. A contextualising study on fauces-mosaics in Pompeii, on entrances (fauces) to Pompeian domestic dwellings and their mosaic-floors. I am interested in the private entrance as a public space, and thus how it was decorated. Since the study's focus is on entrance-mosaics, the atrium-house and its fauces, will be investigated, which will include some 30 houses with figurative and ornamental mosaics, some with epigraphic inscriptions. Furthermore, I will study the location and distribution of the houses at Pompeii, as to see if this was of any importance for the house-owner and his or her (presumed) display of cultural status.
