Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

I earned my PhD in Roman law in march, 2014 (university of Alicante and Facolta di giurisprudenza Palermo) concerning the criminal liability for shipwrecking. I finished my 2nd PhD in archaeology  in June 2018, concerning the epigraphy of merchandise at the Universities of Southampton and Lyon 2 la lumiere, related to the Portus limen project (http://portuslimen.eu/). My research interest lies on Roman law and especially on its commercial and maritime focus. I was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship at the Helsinki Collegium for advanced studies (2018-2020) to develop a project entitled materialising and tracing roman commercial sea law (2nd cent BC-3rd cent AD) I aim to understand legal procedures from an anthropological point of view and thinking what do the parties in trade aimed to achieve by using certain legal mechanisms or practices.  I have been hired as collaborator for the Center of Excellence Eurostorie (University of Helsinki), concretely on the subproject 1 "Law and the uses of the past" (https://www.helsinki.fi/en/researchgroups/law-identity-and-the-european-narratives) until 2024. From 2021 to 2022, I will be working as a research fellow at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg Münster 'Legal unity and Pluralism' (https://evir-muenster.de/), where I will develop my project 'Commercial Portscapes: an holistic approach to Roman trade'.
