Personal profile

Research interests

As an architect and architectural conservator with an interest in the science of representation, my research is highly interdisciplinary and is based on a multi-scale approach which starts from the territory and extends to architectural interventions. I am particularly interested in the history and conservation of traditional Mediterranean architecture and the intercultural exchange that generated these spaces. In particular, I am interested in studying and proposing strategies for preserving the peculiarities of these milieus, understanding how specific social settings have generated formal aspects and configurations and how the lessons from the past can be used in contemporary architecture in the context of climate change. 

This possibility of knowing and bringing together different perspectives is an essential aspect of my teaching and scholarly activities and, simultaneously, a cultural element I have explored in publications, workshops and studies funded by external and internal grants.  

I am a member of several scientific associations and collaborate as an Expert Peer Reviewer for National and International Research Projects. In addition, I serve as a scientific coordinator and member of the editorial board of international conferences and journals.

I welcome PhD applications, especially in the fields of Architectural Preservation, Vernacular Architecture, Islamic Architecture, Architecture and Migration.
