tasoulaI am an archaeologist specialized in pottery analysis. My research interests focus on the interdisciplinary study of pottery as a means of reconstructing and understanding past social practices, technologies and communication, in order to interpret change over time and space. As a postdoctoral researcher of the PLANTCULT project I am engaged in the study of ceramic cooking vessels, as integral utensils in culinary practices and proxies of social expression.
