I work as a postdoctoral researcher at the Ruhr-University of Bochum, where I study short and long distance connectivity in the Mediterranean with a focus on the Balkans, Italy and Greece in the 3rd millennium BC. My research interests comprise uses of past in identity building, heritage destruction, pottery technology, gift economy, mobility and connectivity.
