Personal profile

Research overview

I am a Roman historian whose work focuses mainly on the late antique period, with particular emphasis on Rome and Italy. I have published works on the evolution of late antique Rome's urban space, the senatorial aristocracy, Christianity and religious change, honorific monuments and civic life, and on houses and domestic spaces. I am currently preparing works on the history of poverty in Late Antiquity and the role played by portraits and visual culture in the urban life of late antique Italy.


I gained my DPhil in Ancient History from the University of Oxford in 2006, after having studied History in Niterói (UG) and Economic History in São Paulo (MSc), Brazil. I was a fellow at the British School at Rome (2006-2008) and a Humboldt Fellow at the Seminar für Alte Geschichte und Epigraphik at the University of Heidelberg (2008-2009). Before coming to St Andrews in January 2015, I was a lecturer at the Universidade Federal de São Paulo (2010-2013) and the Universidade de São Paulo (2013-2015).
