I am an archaeologist, specialised in Public Archaeology and Heritage, with a focus on Digital Heritage. I have led on an array of international research projects in these areas. After a BA in Archaeology and an MA in Medieval Archaeology from the University of Florence, I completed a PhD in Public Archaeology from the UCL Institute of Archaeology. Before joining Stirling, I worked as Post-Doctoral Research Associate and Co-Investigator Researcher at the University of Newcastle, Central Saint Martins University of the Arts London, and the UCL Institute of Archaeology.
I have designed, participated in and coordinated a broad portfolio of collaborative research projects in the UK, Europe and the Middle East, focussing on the study of public perceptions and experience of the past, digital co-production and public engagement, data science and digital ethnographies in heritage studies, heritage values and the politics of the past. In Italy, I have spearheaded the set-up of public archaeology as a field of study, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Florence. I have advised and completed commissioned reports for arts and culture organisations and funding bodies in the UK and Europe. I have been invited to give keynote speeches, lectures and presentations around the world, in countries including the UK, Italy, Spain, Germany, Finland, Norway, Jordan, the US, Mexico and China. My work has been reported in an array of popular outlets such as Nature Communications, the Guardian, the Times, the Telegraph, le Scienze, La Repubblica, Culture 24 and Discovery.
Archaeologist, I study the Late Antique and Early Medieval/Byzantine period on the northern side of the Mediterranean, focusing on pottery usage patterns, quantitative methods and domestic life.
I work for the Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali, as an officer of the Soprintendenza in Liguria, where I deal with archaeological activity of all kinds ranging from the Middle Paleolithic to the present.
I was co-editor of JOAD from 2013 to 2019.
I am a Ramón y Cajal researcher at ICAC where I co-directe the Landscape Archaeology Research Group (GIAP). I work on a wide range of landscape-related topics but I have mainly focused on the analysis of human-landscape dynamics in Mediterranean environments. I have worked on the application of GIS and Remote Sensing techniques to archaeological research and the development of field surveying methodologies.

I am a lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh. My research interests are focused on the application of computational methods to understand a diversity of topics such as conflict, cultural evolution and settlement dynamics.
Vicki is a Research Fellow for Trial Conduct Methodology at the MRC CTU at UCL, following thirteen years working in clinical trials in both data and trial management, whilst pursuing a part-time PhD in human bioarchaeology. Until May 2019 she was Co-Editor of JOAD. She is currently working to change data sharing practices at MRC CTU at UCL and within the wider clinical trial community, but still very much loves her home discipline of archaeology.
