University of Siena

I’m currently faculty member of the University of Siena (Italy), in the Department of History and Cultural Heritage, where I’m engaged in teaching and research as senior lecturer in ancient topography. I’m specialized in landscape archaeology, remote sensing, GIS, and archaeological methodology for purposes of research, recording, and conservation. My work is focused on the understanding of past landscapes from prehistory to the present day. The principal context for my work has been Tuscany, but I have also participated in and led research work in the UK, Spain, Turkey, Palestine, Iraq and Asia. Recently, I was visiting professor at École Normale Supérieure in Paris and at the Institute of Archaeology of Erbil (Erbil-Iraq). In 2011, I was admitted as a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London (FSA), and from 2014 to 2016 I was Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge (UK).
