PhD candidate / Guest
Irene Vikatou is a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Archaeology.
Irene splits her time between Greece and the Netherlands. When she is in Leiden her office days are Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Irene's research focuses on the ancient Greek road network during pre-Roman and Roman times in order to assess the extent to which Greek roads served as predecessors to the Roman ones. The extent to which roads complemented the established sea network in the region will also be explored. Irene's research will use combined methodologies such as literature, GIS analysis, remote sensing, and fieldwork.
Irene Vikatou studied Biology at the University of Athens and completed an M.Sc. in Osteoarchaeology and Funerary Archaeology at Leiden University in 2013. Her field of expertise is analysis of human skeletal remains from archaeological excavations, focusing on pathological lesions caused by external factors, such as strenuous physical activity. In May 2017, Irene joined the Set in Stone project as a research assistant for Prof.dr. Ann Brysbaert. Since September 2020 she started her own PhD research at the faculty of Archaeology.
