Research: Society before the city: Settlement development and centralization in Latium Vetus from the middle bronze age to the early iron age
PhD candidate focussing on late bronze age and early iron age settlement development in southern Latium. My research aims to shed light on the complex processes that lead up to centralization and urbanization, based on a qualitative investigation of settlement data and a foundation of sociological theory. Key sites in this project are Satricum and Mazzocchio.
Other interests: Volscian burial practices and the application of photo-based 3D modelling and UAV's for excavations and landscape archaeology.
