I initially studied at the University of Verona, where I earned a MA in Classics, and then at the University of Calgary, where I completed my PhD in Roman History in 2017. Between 2017 and 2019, I was a Faculty of Arts and Science Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Classics at the University of Toronto. The study of Roman imperial history of the second and third centuries CE with a particular focus on the Severan age is my primary research area. In this respect I have published several articles on Julia Domna, the wife of emperor Septimius Severus and the first Augusta from Syria, as well as a book on the municipal policies of Severus (Septimius Severus and the Cities of the Empire). Over the past few years, I have also devoted considerable attention to social, religious and military topics in Roman History by publishing contributions on a wide range of aspects, such as the public benefactions of the priestesses of the imperial cult in Africa Proconsularis, the presence of Danubian soldiers in Numidia, and the cults of the ethnic regiments stationed along the Danubian frontier.
