In the last five years, I have been a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the North-West University (School of Ancient Languagesand Text Studies) in Potchefstroom, South Africa, where I have also worked as a Temporary Lecturer of Classical Greek, Latin and Classical Rhetoric. I have previously completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Papyrology at the Department of Letters, Arts, History and Society (L.A.S.S.) of the University of Parma, Italy, where I was involved in research activities within the ERC project DIGMEDTEXT ('Online HumanitiesScholarship: A Digital Medical Library based on Ancient Texts'). I hold an M.A. in Classics and a PhD inHistory (curr. Papyrology) from the University of Parma. In 2012, I have received a Yggdrasil grant from the Norwegian Research Council to work as a Visiting Researcher at the University of Oslo (IFIKK - Institutt forfilosofi, ide- og kunsthistorie og klassiske språk - Deparment of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas). This grant was, then, exceptionally extended with funds from the Department IFIKK itself (2013). I am also an Instructor of Papyrology for the Paideia Institute (New York). My main research interests are concerned with papyrology, especially lexical studies, and ancient medicine. Other research interests include classical philology, Greek and Latin language and literature, linguistics, digital approaches to antiquity,archaeology and material culture. I have published two monographies, several book chapters in peer-reviewed volumes and articles in various international journals such as 'Zeitschrift für Papyrologie und Epigraphik' (ZPE), 'MarburgerBeiträge zur Antiken Handels-, Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte' (MBAH), and 'Bulletin of the AmericanSociety of Papyrologists' (BASP).
