About

Dr Arianna Traviglia is the Coordinator of the IIT Centre for Cultural Heritage Technology (CCHT). Dr Traviglia’s work is placed at the intersection of technology and humanities and most of her research focuses on mediating the inclusion of digital practices within the study and management of cultural heritage. Her expertise lies mainly in multi and hyperspectral image processing (close and far range) for the analysis of cultural landscape and material culture.

Lecturer in Computing Applications to Archaeology and Cultural Heritage and in Computational Thinking at the University Ca’ Foscari of Venice from 2003 to 2018, she held positions as Postdoctoral and Research Fellow at the University of Sydney and Macquarie University-Sydney from 2006 to 2015. She re-entered European academia in 2015 as the recipient of an H2020 Marie Curie Fellowship, held until 2018. 

Dr Traviglia is part of the Executive Steering Committee of the International Computer Application and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) association and has chaired the 41st international Computer Applications in Archaeology Conference (CAA2013 Perth, Across space and time), co-organised the 2016 International Congress of Underwater Archaeology(IKUWA 6), and the 2018 International Aerial Archaeology Group (AARG) conference, and chaired a number of sessions on digital applications to archaeology at major international conferences. She has also been a member of several conferences organising and scientific committees on digital Cultural Heritage topics. 
She is currently a member of the Management Committee of the COST Action Archaeological practices and knowledge work in the digital environment (Arkwork), a Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator of several projects funded by the European Commission and centered around the use of digital technologies for cultural heritage analysis and protection (NETCHER, REPAIR), and co-director of a project (CLS) funded by the European Space Agency focused on the use of satellite imagery and AI for detecting buried archaeological sites.

She is also the co-Editor of the Journal of Computer Application in Archaeology (JCAA).
