I am an archaeologist of the ancient Greek world. I received my education in Classics at the University of Pisa and in Classical Archaeology at the University of Messina. Prior to coming to Oxford I was a Fellow of the Italian and British Schools of Archaeology in Athens, of the American Academy in Rome and of the Center for Hellenic Studies at Harvard University. I have worked on surveys and excavations in Greece, Sicily and Albania. Since 2004, I am the assistant curator of the collection of casts of Greek and Roman sculptures at the Ashmolean Museum, and I teach Classical archaeology for the Faculty of Classics and New College.
