PhD candidate working on NIR imaging applications for the study of stones artefacts and building materials in archaeology.
Characterization of archaeological lithic materials is a proxy to understand the dynamics of geologic resources exploitation in ancient societies. My interest relies in provenance studies of stone artefacts to shed a light on past trade networks and economical systems. The main goal of my PhD is testing an analytical protocol for the characterization of geological materials through the use of NIR spectroscopy and hyperspectral imaging.
This research is carried out within the MOBIMA project who aims to replace time consuming expensive laboratory analyses by applying quick visual image analytical information in archaeological research.Close
