Research

I am a PhD candidate and a teaching assistant at the Faculty of Archaeology, Leiden University. In my research, I investigate ceramic production, exchange and consumption in the Byzantine and Frankish Aegean (ca. 1100-1500 AD). Currently, I am involved in several international projects in Greece, Turkey, and Albania. This includes post-fieldwork studies at Chalkis (Euboea), Almyros (Thessaly), Agios Vasilios (Peloponnese), Ephesus (Ionia), Shkodër (North-Albania), Sardis (Lydia) and Gortyn (Crete). I am also involved in Leiden Inventory Depot (LID) Project. I assist in teaching subjects including Byzantium, the Crusades and archaeology and history of the eastern Mediterranean world from post-Roman to post-medieval times, more generally.

Teaching activities

My teaching focuses on the post-Roman Mediterranean world, mainly on Byzantium and the Crusader period, seen from an archaeological perspective. The emphasis lies on medieval and early modern socio-economic development and (inter)regional connectivity in the eastern Mediterranean, namely the Aegean and the Levant.

Curriculum vitae

I studied archaeology at the Faculty of Archaeology, Leiden University, with a specialisation on Roman, medieval and early modern Europe. During my MA in 2016, I studied Byzantine archaeology and focussed on pottery of the medieval eastern Mediterranean. In 2017, I was a project assistant of Prof. Joanita Vroom as part of an NWO-DANS Klein DataProject-grant project. Since 2018, I am working as a teaching assistant at the Faculty. In 2019, I started my Ph.D. research as part of an Aspasia-grant project of Prof. Vroom.
