I hold a PhD in Art History from the University of Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne (2015).
I have been conducting research on Early Abbasid architectural decoration, paintings and iconography, and particularily on a comprhensive reassessement of the paintings uncovered in the Caliphal city of Samarra (Iraq), and on other related artifacts. My work comprises a thourough analysis of archives and reports related to the excavations of Samarra, a careful reexamination of the surviving material as well as a critical analysis of Medieval sources.
