Biography

I was born in Alessandria, Italy, where I first became acquainted with Greek and Roman history attending the local Liceo Classico.

I took BA (2006) and MA (2008) degrees in Classics at the Università degli Studi di Torino (studying at the Collegio Einaudi), after which I moved to Durham University for three years. There I received a PhD in Classics and Ancient History (awarded in January 2012).

After my viva in 2011 I moved to Athens for a few months, as School Student at the British School at Athens, before taking up an Alexander von Humboldt Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Mannheim in 2012. I moved to Edinburgh in 2013 to take up a Chancellor’s Fellowship in Classics.

In 2014 I was appointed Member of the Royal Society of Edinburgh Young Academy of Scotland and I have been, since January 2015, Co-Chair of the Arts and Humanities in Society Working Group. In 2015 I was awarded a Philip Leverhulme Prize in recognition of my research achievements. In 2017 I was awarded the Royal Society of Edinburgh's Thomas Reid Medal for Excellence in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, in recognition of my research on Greek politics and law.

In spring 2017 I am Visiting Professor of Greek History at the Università di Cagliari.
