Fabio Silva is a Research Associate at the Institute of Archaeology at University College London and a tutor at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, both in the United Kingdom. He co-founded and co-edits the Journal of Skyscape Archaeology, and is the Secretary of the European Society for Astronomy in Culture (SEAC).

His research interests focus on how humans perceive and conceive their environment and use that knowledge to time and adjust social, productive and magico-religious behaviours. This steered him, at large space and time scales, to the computational modelling and statistical analysis of culture-dependent dispersal dynamics, of human-environment relations and of palaeodemography; and at more regionals scales to landscape and skyscape archaeology of (mostly) late prehistoric monuments.
