Biography


My research focuses on the cultural history of pre-Roman Italy, especially the Etruscans. Current writing projects include a monograph on Etruscan gender identity, the subject of my doctoral dissertation. The book, provisionally entitled, The Etruscan Male, will address the construction of male identity in 'Archaic' Etruria. I was awarded a Royal Irish Academy Mobility Grant  n 2014 to undertake library research for this at the British School at Rome. Another project I am currently completing is  an examination of Chiusine bucchero pesante which has been partially funded by the 
Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies. This has involved the creation of a major database cataloguing published and unpublished material, as well as considering where pesante fits into the ceramic traditions of pre-Roman central Italy. 

 As well as this I am an active field archaeologist. I currently work on the excavation project of the Etruscan settlement of 
Poggio Civitate (Murlo), and a number of other archaeological projects in the Mediterranean.

Together with Edward Herring, I am co-organising a major international conference - the Seventh Conference of Italian Archaeology - to be held at NUI Galway in April 2016. The meeting will be the successor to previous ones held in the UK and the Netherlands.
