Welcome to my website...

I am an anthropological archaeologist interested in the sociality of technology, the active participation of material culture in the formation of identity, long-term technological traditions, the maintenance and transformation of technological taskscapes, the co-existence of distinct technological traditions, and how native communities experience colonization through the organization of daily tasks.

My work, which has focused to date on SW Hungary and SW Italy, combines traditional archaeological methods with experimental and analytical techniques in the field and the laboratory. It attempts tomove beyond the traditional chrono-typological approaches to ceramics and contribute to the creation of new methodologies for the extraction of anthropological and ecological information from ceramic remains.
