Having studied mathematics, architecture and classics at Lund University, I took a PhD in classical archaeology and ancient history in 2002. The dissertation constituted a close study of a Roman sepulchral monument: the tomb of Caecilia Metella. After a postdoc at the Department of classics, Royal Holloway College, London, I held the position as assistant professor at the Department of archaeology and ancient history in Uppsala, where I also acted as director of studies. I was awarded the docentship in 2008. In the spring of 2010 I returned to work at Lund University, first as research fellow and then as senior lecturer. Since February 2021, I am professor in classical archaeology and ancient history at this department. My research mostly revolves around Greek and Roman architecture and I am presently running several projects concerning the early use of fired bricks in antiquity, the ancient Greek city of Hermione and the Republican basilicas of the Forum Romanum in Rome respectively.
