Academic interests

The focus of my PhD project is the study of pigment production based on the material remains of a late Hellenistic workshop, found at the district of the ancient agora of Kos (Greece). Excavations on the site brought to light numerous pigments, raw materials, fire-structures, alongside metallurgical remains. The production of Egyptian blue must have been one of the workshop’s core activities, while earth pigment lumps in different stages of production were also found.
