Academic Background

Beside my university education in Italy (BA 2011, MA 2013, PhD 2017), I have benefited from research stays at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau (WS 2014, SoSe 2015, SoSe 2018) and as an Apollo Fellow at the Centre for Classical and Near-Eastern Studies of Australia of the University of Sydney (2017). I moved to Oxford in October 2018.

Research Interests

The focus of my research is ancient drama, especially Greek comedy and above all Doric and New Comedy. My current research project is a new critical edition with commentary of Epicharmus’ fragments. Other interests are Greek dialectology and epigraphy, fragmentary literature, and pseudepigraphy.

Research Keywords

Ancient theatre, Greek comedy, Magna Graecia and Sicily, Greek dialectology, Greek epigraphy


I do some college teaching on both Greek and Latin at Oriel.
