Director of the Environmental Archaeology Lab. Archaeobotanist.
Since January 2024 I am Director of The Environmental Archaeology Lab, a research, consultancy and education infrastructure in Environmental archaeology. We provide multiproxy approach in our work combining a variety of methods in the interpretation of our data.
My background is in Archaeology and Environmental Archaeology with solid experience in contract archaeology. My research is focusing on the investigation of human–plants interactions in the past. By studying plant remains I try to reconstruct palaeodiet, plant economy, food processing and agricultural practices, and land use. I am also interested in human impact on the environment, use of woodland resources, vegetation history and its development through time.
I am also involved in teaching in the Environmental Archaeology Master's program and the Archaeology Program at the university. I teach courses in Field and laboratory methodology, Theory and methods, Field course in Environmental Archaeology, Environmental archaeology - advanced study in theory and methodology
