Alison E. Cooley is a British classicist specialising in Latin epigraphy. She is a professor at the University of Warwick and former head of its Department of Classics and Ancient History. In 2004, she was awarded The Butterworth Memorial Teaching Award.
Cooley has published widely on epigraphy as well as organising conferences on the topic.

The Bryn Mawr Classical Review said of the second edition (2014) of her sourcebook on Pompeii and Herculaneum that it was "an essential resource for anyone researching or teaching about Pompeii".
