Architecture and Urbanism on the Ancient Bay of Naples

As field director of the Oplontis Project —  a study of a villa and an emporium buried by Vesuvius —  I have published an article detailing the rediscovery of a lost fresco from the villa. I am also writing up the results of our excavations for the final publication of the project. At the same time, I am developing a manuscript that traces the social and architectural context of the fortifications at Pompeii. In addition, I am collaborating with the Pompeii Archaeological Research Project: Porta Stabia to publish a chapter on a city gate and an article on the religious aspects of the Pompeian fortifications.
