Postdoctoral Research Assistant


evitaMy particular research focus lies on the study of Greek Neolithic cooking facilities (hearths, ovens) as complementary means of investigating the formation of social spaces and how different forms of habitus or different kinds of human-things entanglements tells us something of how daily living was structured in prehistoric societies. For the study of these features, I am applying an integrated methodology of morphological and functional examination, petrographic study and provenance, together with spatial and contextual analysis. At PlantCult project this methodology will be applied in a broad geographical region that mainly covers south-east Europe and will be further enhanced with experimental studies.
