Research Description

I excavate the prehistoric site of Mycenae and the classical sanctuary of Nemea, both in Greece. As a specialist in ceramics, I work with material culture and involve many students in my research, here and abroad. Currently I am working on the earliest manifestations of Greek religious ritual through permanent architectural establishments and recognized paraphernalia - such as figurines.
