Biography

I am a PhD student with a special interest in Aegean archaeology. Before starting my studies here, I completed my undergraduate (BA in Greek Philology; BA in Archaeology & History of Art) and postgraduate studies (MA in Prehistoric Archaeology) at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. My Masters dissertation was on the study of firing techniques in the Middle Bronze Age pottery of mainland Greece. I have participated in several excavations and studies of archaeological material in Greece.

Research

My PhD focuses on the communities of mainland Greece at the end of the 3rd millennium BC. My aim is to examine different aspects of material culture, such as settlement organisation, pottery technology and production, metallurgy and burials. Through the comparative study of material originating from different datasets from across mainland Greece, I would like to identify and interpret the social strategies at play in the period under investigation. I hope that my study contributes towards a better understanding of this crucial period for Aegean archaeology, and towards the way ‘change’, ‘gaps’, and ‘transitional periods’ are treated in our disciplinary discourse in general.
