Department of Archaeology and Ancient History

The Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology | Lund University


I studied archaeology at the University of Rome La Sapienza, and after a period of work as research assistant at the Institute for Technologies Applied to Cultural Heritage, ITABC-CNR Italy, I started a PhD in Technologies and Management of Cultural Heritage at the Institute for Advance Studies -IMT Lucca, Italy.
After the PhD, I worked as Post Doc and Lecturer at the University of California, Merced. In September 2009 I moved to Sweden, where I started a research activity at the Department of Design Science and at the Humanistic Lab; later on I joined the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History of Lund.

Currently I am responsible for the courses of landscape archaeology and digital archaeology.


About the research

My research is mostly focused on the development of digital methodologies for the investigation and the analysis of archaeological contexts. In particular I am interested on how the use of new technologies such as: Laser Scanners, Photogrammetry Techniques, GIS and Virtual Reality, are influencing the way of how we investigate and perceive the past.
