Welcome to my website. You can find in these pages information on my past and ongoing research project and interests.
I am a Aegean Bronze Age archaeologist and I work more specifically on Minoan Crete (3100-1200 BCE). So far, my research mainly focuses on a diachronic study of Minoan architectural configuration and on network analyses of processes of urbanization and invention/innovation in the material culture of Bronze Age Crete. I also have the great opportunity to do a lot of fieldwork, mostly on Crete. There, I am involved in the excavation and publication of different Minoan sites (such as Sissi, Palaikastro and Myrtos-Pyrgos) where I usually work as an area supervisor and architecture specialist.
I am currently Marie Curie research fellow at the Aegean Material Culture Laboratory (AMCL) of the University of Toronto. I am also a member of the Aegean Interdisciplinary Studies research group (AegIS) of the Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium) where I previously was postdoctoral researcher (chargé de recherches) of the Fonds National de la Recherche Scientifique (FNRS). I also worked for a year at Bryn Mawr College as research fellow of the Belgian American Educational Foundation (BAEF). I studied archaeology at the Université Catholique de Louvain where I also teach BA and MA classes in archeometry and archaeological theory respectively.
Recently, I also started studying urban design (Université Catholique de Louvain). I see this new training as an opportunity to strengthen my archaeological research but also as a way to approach the modern urban phenomenon with original tools. In this context, my forthcoming research in the archaeology of the contemporary past will focus on the urban palimpsest and the materiality of the city in the case of the so-called Bruxellisation phenomenon.
