About me

I am an Anniversary Research Fellow in Heritage at the University of Stirling. My current research project aims to achieve an advanced understanding of the social values attributed to heritage in contemporary societies under the influence of climate change, scientific interventions and digital visualisations, through a set of methods crosscutting humanities and sciences.

I have a MA in archaeology from Durham University (UK) and PhD in cultural heritage management from the University of Barcelona (Spain). My doctoral project, “World Heritage, Archaeological Tourism and Social Value in China”, fully-funded for three years by AGAUR, the Government of Catalonia, explored the complex relationship between UNESCO World Heritage designation, tourism development, and the social values attributed to archaeological sites by local communities, in the context of contemporary China.
