My research and teaching centre on early modern history, with a special interest in economic and social developments. I have worked in leading research projects on the history of early printed books (both in the UK and Italy) and was able to build a strong international network within the academic community by presenting my work in the UK, the US, the Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium, Italy and Switzerland.
In the past years, I was involved with research groups on Digital Humanities (developing OCR for pre-eighteenth-century documents) the History of Science as well as Legal History. In fact, my monograph 'Government Use of Print' was published by the MPI for Legal History and Legal Thought.
As I strive to bridge the gap between academia and wider audiences, my published work includes more general publications such as newspaper articles and contributions to exhibitions.
