Warm welcome to two PhD students who join the SAW project in September 2012.

Magali Dessagnes will be working, under supervision of Christine Proust, on history of collection of Mesopotamian sources. Magali has studied history, archeology, and history of science in Paris.

Alessandra Petrocchi will be doing her research project in history of mathematics in ancient and medieval Indic sources related to administrative contexts, under supervision of Agathe Keller. Alessandra has studied in Urbino, Bologna, and Cambridge.

The two new PhD students have something in common: they both did Ancient Greek and Latin at school, and both are accomplished musicians. Welcome to the team, Alessandra and Magali!
