About Me

I research and teach at the intersection between literary studies, philology, history and digital humanities. Exploring how technologies (from manuscript to print to digital) change the way we produce, read and interpret texts.

I am currently working on a new digital edition of the Albizi Memorial Book (a book written by a Medieval Florentine merchant who survived the Black Death and recorded his business and personal memories, 1340-1380) and on a monograph on forms and textualities of Medieval memorial books.
