Biography

After completing my B.A. in Classical Archaeology and my M.B.A. in Management and Promotion of Cultural Heritage, both at the University of Urbino, Italy, in 2006 I joined the Nautical Archaeology Program at Texas A&M University, where I earned both my M.A. (2010) and my Ph.D. (2014) in Mediterranean History and Nautical Archaeology. In 2014, I was the sole recipient of the College of Liberal Arts Post-doctoral Fellowship in Nautical Archaeology, and in 2015 I joined the Faculty at the Department of Visualization, College of Architecture, Texas A&M University. In 2016, I was awarded the Archaeological Institute of America Fellowship in Nautical Archaeology in honor of the late Richard J. Steffy (MacArthur Fellow, 1985).
