My research focuses mainly on the application of landscape archaeology methods for the study of human societies past and present. I am interested in the prehistory of South East Europe from the Neolithic to the end of the Bronze Age and the study of the world Diasporas, mainly the Greek, the Armenian, and the Jewish. Recently I started working on the impact that seasonal mobility has on transhumance groups, historical and contemporary.
I have an interest in the development of field methods in archaeology and anthropology and the intergation of theory into practice. I have introduced the application of paperless mapping for cave archaeology survey, the application of anayltical computational photography for the study of stone artefacts, and the idea of applying geomorphological techniques for reconstructing the paleosensorial spectrum in archaeological sites.
Through my research, I advocate the introduction of Cultural and Natural Heritage in Educational context. I suggest that heritage as metalanguage can create a common space for social inclusion and language learning. For my research in Cultural Heritage applications in education I have been co-awarded in 2018 with an Eramsus+ Key Action 2 research grant, in collaboration with Cardiff Metropolitan University, Cathays High School, University of Padua in Italy, the International School of Belgrade, and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece.
I have been awarded two consequtive Heritage Lottery Fund grants since 2018 with the aim to study the archaeology and material culture of the Greek Diaspora societies in Cardiff and London, and the study of the Urban landscapes of the former Cardiff docklands.
I am currently co-PI and Project Director for the 'Finds Stories' project (2012-2023), part of the iMobILLe initiative, that aims to study through a combination of bioanthropology, material culture studies, and landscape archaeology, the impact that seasonal mobility has on transhumance groups in Western Balkans and Greece.
I am project partner of the Australian Paliochora-Kythera Archaeological Survey (APKAS), working on the study of landscapes of northern Kythera, an island in the souther Aegean. I am also a visiting researcher at the Akrotiri excavations at Santorini island Greece. Finally I am co-Director for the University of Bristol excavations in the medieval buidling complex at Lower Hazel, South Gloucestershire, UK.
