Bio (via ORCID)
I am a Roman archaeologist with an outspoken holistic and comparative approach to my work. My research deals with agriculture and economy, but I specialize in all things related to ancient vines and wines. My focus lies on Italy and the Western Mediterranean from Republic to Empire, but I have conducted fieldwork in Italy, Greece, Portugal and Belgium. I hold a double PhD in Classical Archaeology from the universities of Pisa (Italy) and Ghent (Belgium), and I have been a postdoctoral researcher at the latter institute since 2015. I was a Fellow of the Academia Belgica (and Belgian Historical Institute) in Rome, the Collegio dei Fiamminghi in Bologna, and the DAI in Berlin, and a Visiting Scholar at Columbia University in the City of New York and Padova University. My latest work on Roman winemaking in earthenware vessels is scheduled for publication in Antiquity (2024). Recent publications include the edited books Reframing the Roman Economy (Palgrave Macmillan, 2022), Vine-growing and Winemaking in the Roman World (Peeters, 2023) and Methods in Ancient Wine Archaeology (Bloomsbury, 2024).
