I work as archaeobotanist at the Environmental Archaeology Lab, a consultancy, research, and educational infrastructure at Department of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies. My background is in Archaeology and Environmental Archaeology. I have participated in numerous excavations spanning from Neolithic to the Middle Ages. My field of research is Archaeobotany. It focuses on the investigation of human–plants interactions in the past. By studying plant remains I try to reconstruct plant economy, palaeodiet, food processing and agricultural practices, and land use. I am also interested on human impact on the environment, use of woodland resources, vegetation history and its development through time.

I am involved in the consultancy work at Environmental Archaeology Lab. I conduct plant macrofossil analysis, studying carbonized and waterlogged plant remains (carbonized and waterlogged seed, fruit and wood). We provide multiproxy approach in our consultancy work combining different kind of analyses in the interpretation of our data.
