Research

  • Research interests

    Her main research interests focuses on the High Middle Ages, and within that she mainly deals with material culture and social archaeology, with a special focus on mortuary archaeology with an emphasis on cemetery analysis and irregular burials. She also conducts GIS-driven research on the spatial relations of the archaeology of Christianisation and the development of the rural church network, which is her PhD topic at CEU. Her main DH interests concern the application of GIS on diverse archaeological and historical data.
