I am a Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the Department of Classics and the Principal Investigator of the multidesciplinary project ATLOMY – “Anatomy in Ancient Greece and Rome: An Interactive Visual and Textual Atlas” funded by an ERC-Starting Grant.
My research focuses on anatomy, physiology and diagnostics in pre-modern societies. I am intrigued by how people explored and interpreted nature, in particularly the living body, its structure and its workings. I find the collaboration with modern medical experts and practitioners particularly stimulating and fruitful.
My fascination with how things are built and work extends to inanimate technologies and constructions – in particular planes, engines and sky-scrapers. I pursue these interests in my non-academic activities alongside my love for hiking, practicingkrav magaand calisthenics, reading fiction, spending time with my family and friends and a few other things.
