I am an archaeologist who works closely with geologists. The goal is to build a working vocabulary and find appropriate analytical methodologies for archaeological problem-solving. As such my research is collaborative in nature. Almost every subdiscipline in geology has concepts, analytical methods and a knowledge base that can contribute to the solution of archaeological problems. There is a growing awareness that archaeological research is dependent on the geological constraints of specific physical environments.
My research is field-based with much of my fieldwork conducted in the Mediterranean Basin . Field support in Greece is supplied by the Wiener Laboratory at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
