I am a Classical archaeologist studying ancient Greece and Rome. After obtaining my PhD from the University of Vienna, I was Assistant Professor at the University of Darmstadt (Germany). In 2015, I moved to the UK where I took up a lectureship in Classical Archaeology at the University of Birmingham. In 2018, I was appointed Associate Professor of Roman Archaeology and Art at the University of Oxford and Fellow of Wolfson College. Since my years as an undergraduate in Vienna I have worked on archaeological excavations and field projects in Austria, Greece and Syria.
My research interests cover all aspects of ancient material culture, and in my work I always try to combine written sources and archaeology. Most recently, I published a book on the social and cultural impact of violence and civil war towards the end of the Roman republic.
