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 Guest Lecturer at the Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium) where I teach BA and MA classes in archeometry, archaeological theory and ethnoarchaeology. Since 2017, I am also Assistant Professor (status only) in the Department of Art in the University of Toronto where I was based, from 2013 to 2016, as Marie Curie research fellow at the Aegean Material Culture Laboratory (AMCL).
I am also a member of the Aegean Interdisciplinary Studies research group (AegIS) of the Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium) where I previously was research associate (assistant de recherches) within the ARC ‘A World in Crisis’ and 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).
Recently, I finished a MA in urban planning (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.
