BiographyAs a Junior Research Fellow (2014-17) at Magdalene College, I am undertaking a monograph on Marcello Piacentini, the most prominent architect of Mussolini's fascist regime. Formerly, as a Fellow of the British School at Rome (2013-14), I worked on a project on Italy's fascist ossuaries of the Great War, which focused on how the fascist state exploited death as propaganda. A book based on my doctoral thesis (University of Cambridge, 2013) was published by Routledge in April 2017 under the title: Architecture, Death and Nationhood: The Monumental Cemeteries of Nineteenth-Century Italy.
