Introduction
I am a geoarchaeologist specialized in archaeological soil micromorphology. I am further trained in XRF, XRD and FT-IR applied in archaeological research and the basics of soil science. Research/professional interests include Prehistoric archaeology and use of fire (pyrotechnology), archaeological materials sourcing and archaeological site formation processes.

Article
The Middle Neolithic tell of Imvrou Pigadi (~6920–6570 cal. years before present) belongs to a cluster of sites at the southern edge of the Plain of Thessaly, Greece. Following a specifically tailored geoarchaeological methodology comprising micromorphology coupled with Fourier‐transformed infrared spectroscopy, X‐ray diffraction, X‐ray fluorescenc...
Article
In the present study, we investigate the Mediterranean–Paratethys connection during the late Miocene in Strymon Basin (North Aegean, northeastern Mediterranean) and compare this onshore sequence with the adjacent offshore Prinos-Nestos sequence, before, during, and after the Messinian Salinity Crisis (MSC). Strymon Basin was a peripheral shallow-wa...

The Middle Neolithic tell site of Imvrou Pigadi (6920 ± 36 - 6570 ± 40 cal yr BP) belongs to an important cluster of sites at the southern edge of the Thessaly Plain, in the area of Neo Monastiri, Prefecture of Phthiotis, Greece. The site functioned as a ceramics workshop for the area, at least for a certain period of time but besides the findings...

Thesis
The tell site of Imvrou Pigadi (5890-5470 BC) is the second largest Middle Neolithic site in the southern edge of the Thessaly Plain, in Greece. The geoarchaeological importance of this tell lies in its very well-preserved and finely stratified occupation deposits and wide variety of building materials, like different kinds of clays and mudbrick, w...

Project
The main objective of the project is to provide a comprehensive narrative of the social developments in Late Neolithic communities in Northern Greece (including Thessaly and Greek Macedonia), focusing on the rich datasets of published and unpublished material remains. Central to the analysis is outdoor spaces as arenas of various and diverse daily performances, subsistence practices, social interactions and gatherings. Combustion features (hearths, ovens, fire pits and kilns) constitute key analytical elements as focal points to control outdoor spaces and as arenas of everyday performances that tackle questions on daily performativity, commensality, interaction and social reproduction.
