Current Position: Post-doctoral researcher in ground stone tool use-wear analysis, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
PhD & MA in Prehistoric Archaeology and Ground Stone Technology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
BA, History and Archaeology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
Research interests: ground stone technology, use-wear analysis, experimental archaeology

As a researcher my main interests lie in the ground stone tool technology and its relation to various aspects of the human world. The social, economic, cultural dimensions that are embedded in technology can help us explore the structure and evolution of past societies and the way people perceived and manipulated their world. As a member of the ERC PLANTCULT project I am focusing on the macroscopic and use-wear analysis of stone tools associated with grinding activities, from selected archaeological sites. I am also participating in the experimental grinding program that focuses on the examination of various parameters affecting the grinding process and in the extensive bibliographic research regarding the grinding equipment from the Aegean to Central Europe, in prehistoric and protohistoric times.
