Henrik Boman connected to the Swedish Institute in Rome as senior research fellow, forskarlektor.
His research is focused on architecture, in the dissertation Movement in space. An architectural analysis of public space in Archaic to Hellenistic Greece (Göteborg university 2003), as well as in more recent projects in Rome, Pompeii and Herculaneum. Main issues are the interactions between buildings and architectural elements in the environment and how space developed and changed over time.

Since 2001 he is connected to the Swedish Pompeii Project and the documentation and analysis of a city block (insula V 1) in the ancient city. Henrik is one of the creators of the research platform of the project: www.pompejiprojektet.se. His future research centers on the evolution of townscape around insula V 1, as well as research on other archaeological sites situated in the proximity of the bay of Naples.
