Aura Fossati is a specialist in techniques for the traceability, circulation and protection of cultural goods, particularly archaeological heritage in fragile contexts. She cooperates as an expert in various international projects funded by the European Union's Research and Innovation program.
Following a Master's degree in "Research in Archaeology" (University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne) and training in "Law and Scientific Techniques of the Expertise of Works of Art" (University of Panthéon-Assas, 2016), Aura Fossati is continuing her academic career with a doctoral thesis at the University of Panthéon Sorbonne (since 2022). Her research work is based on the application of computational methods for analysis and modeling related to the circulation and traceability of cultural goods, in support of an innovative methodological approach adaptable to different categories of art objects.
After collaborating with Laure Chevalier on traceability methods as part of a European project on the protection of cultural goods [NETCHER H2020 (European Commission. Coordination CNRS France)], Aura Fossati is now taking part in targeted research missions on the pedigree and provenance of artworks and collections under Laure Chevalier's responsibility (AGALMATA).
