I graduated from the University of Copenhagen in 1999, where I lectured in classical archaeology at the Saxo-Institute until 2006. I have a PhD from the University of Cambridge, Faculty of Classics (2008).
During the 1990s I was assistant director of the University of Copenhagen Excavations at Panayia Ematousa, Cyprus directed by Prof. Lone Wriedt Sørensen, Saxo-Institute. From 2000 to 2005 I directed the pottery studies of the Troodos Archaeological and Environmental Survey Project, an international multi-disciplinary project in Cyprus directed by Prof. Bernard Knapp and Prof. Michael Given, University of Glasgow, Prof. Jay Noller, University of Oregon, and Prof. Vasiliki Kassianidou, University of Cyprus. I also collaborate with the Department of Antiquities, Cyprus publishing material from rescue-excavated Hellenistic-Roman tombs.
My main research interests are the social, economic, and physical landscapes of Cyprus during the Roman period and pottery studies. My PhD “From pots to people. A ceramic approach to archaeological interpretation of ploughsoil assemblages” investigates the theoretical and practical foundation of ceramic studies in archaeology and the perspectives of activity differentiation of sites identified by archaeological survey based on ceramic studies.
