Personal profile

Research interests

My main research area is papyrology. From 2003 until the project’s completion in 2018, I was part of the team that published the carbonized papyri found in Petra (Jordan). Since 2017, I am working on the carbonized papyri from Bubastos (Egypt).

Another research interest of mine has been Greek/Latin language contact, especially in the sphere of legal language, to which my dissertation was devoted.
