Tiziana D'Angelo (BA, MPhil, PhD) is a Temporary Lecturer in Classical Art and Archaeology in the Faculty of Classics (2014-2018) and a Fellow of St. Edmund’s College, where she serves as Director of Studies in Classics. She completed her first degree in Italy in 2004 (BA in Classics, Università degli Studi di Pavia), then gained an M.Phil. in Classical Archaeology from the University of Oxford in 2007 and a PhD in Classical Archaeology from Harvard University in 2013. Prior to coming to Cambridge, Dr D’Angelo was Jane and Morgan Whitney Postdoctoral Fellow at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Department of Greek and Roman Art (2013-2014), and a Predoctoral Fellow at the Getty Research Institute (2012-2013).

As a Lecturer in the Faculty of Classics at Cambridge, Dr D’Angelo teaches undergraduate and postgraduate courses and seminars on Greek and Roman art and archaeology, and supervises Part I and Part II students from various colleges. Her primary research interests include Greek, Roman, and Etruscan art and archaeology, ancient wall painting and its modern reception, funerary art and archaeology, ancient ethnic and cultural identity, collection of antiquities and museum studies. Her current book project, entitled Painting death with the colors of life: funerary wall painting in South Italy (IV-II BCE)”, explores the development and function of polychrome painting in late Classical and Hellenistic tombs from South Italy and uses this evidence to reconstruct the cultural identity of the native Italic populations and their social and political interactions with the Greeks and the Romans.

Dr D’Angelo has held numerous academic awards, including research fellowships in Cambridge (St. John's College), Oxford (St. Hugh's College), Rome (Phi Beta Kappa Society and Harvard University), Los Angeles (Getty Research Institute), Berlin (Deutsches Archäologisches Institut) and New York (Metropolitan Museum of Art), and she received other grants which allowed her to travel extensively across the Mediterranean and conduct her research and fieldwork.

Dr D’Angelo was elected a Fellow of St. Edmund’s College in 2014. She is a member of the Governing Body and the Tutorial Committee.
