I have been a zooarchaeologist for the last 11 years with work and research experience in several countries such as Spain, France, the Netherlands, Greece, Cyprus and Iraq. After receiving my Ptychion (BA) in History and Archaeology from the University of Athens, I pursued postgraduate studies (MSc in Environmental Archaeology and Palaeoeconomy) at the University of Sheffield, followed by a PhD in zooarchaeology. Since the completion of my PhD in 2010, I was involved in several post-doctoral research projects in several countries and a one-year post in the commercial archaeology sector. I am now delighted for my return to the Department of Archaeology, which gives me the opportunity to contribute to the high-quality teaching and stimulating research environment it offers.
