My current field of research is Old Norse literature, specifically skaldic poetry and the related poetological and grammatical traditions.
My project 'Heiti’s semantics. Lexical Analysis as an Investigative Tool for Expressive and Compositional Strategies in Skaldic Stanzas' aims to shed light on the mechanisms of lexical selection within kenning structures and on the function of heiti from a lexical, semantic and stylistic point of view.
Both Bachelor (2014) and Master (2016) degrees were obtained at the University of Pisa, Department of Literature, Linguistics and Philology, with a curriculum based on theoretical and historical Linguistics, Indo-european studies and philology. The topic of the MA thesis was the semantics of skaldic poetic synonyms(heiti).
