Brief Introduction Top

I was born in Rome, where I attended university graduating (summa cum laude) with a major in Chinese history. Between 1992 and 1997 I pursued post-graduate studies at the Australian National University, obtaining an MA (Asian Studies, 1994) and a Ph.D.(Southeast Asian History, 1998). I've been teaching in the Department of History at NUS since July 1998.
