I have worked extensively on human skeletal assemblages from Greece and I have experience on both singe and multiple burials. I have extensive experience on recording and analyzing stress, pathological and activity indicators on human skeletal remains. I have been trained on morphological biodistance analysis (non-metric traits) to infer phenetic distances/affinities between groups of people to offer insights on mobility and networking.
I have also a background on stable isotope analyses, particularly for the purpose of reconstructing dietary habits of past populations.
I am currently a Marie-Sklodowska Curie post-doctoral fellow at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, in Greece. My project "BIOSOCIOPOLIS'' aims to develop a new understanding of how multiple socio-political transitions, representing different forms of urbanism, may impact on lifeways and deathways on a diachronic scale. The project will follow an integrated methodology combining macroscopic, theoretical and geo-chemical approaches. During my six-month secondment training at the BB-LAB (VUB), I will have the opportunity to expand my isotopic skills on inhumed and cremated human remains, for the purpose of studying human mobility.
