In February 2007, I took up my current post as Associate Professor at the Amsterdam Archaeological Centre. Before, I was director of the Netherlands Institute in Athens. I acquired my PhD degree in 1999 with a dissertation on Mycenaean pottery in the Levant, Cyprus and Italy.

Teaching

My teaching assignment is Greek archaeology, with an emphasis on the pre- and protohostoric periods. In addition, I teach courses concerning archaeological theory, the history of the discipline and museumarchaeology.

Research

One of my research interests revolves around the subject of Mediterranean interconnections of pre- and protohistoric Greece. As such, the western periphery of Greece, has my particular attention, as is also clear from my fieldwork on the Ionian island of Zakynthos. The Zakynthos project is embedded in wider research on the interconnections between Greece, Italy and the Adriatic in prehistory. 

In addition, I conduct research regarding the context of Archaeology and archaeological remains in society. In particular, I am interested in attitudes of the wider public towards archaeology and their influence on the discipline as a whole. As such, the influence of well-known literary works, such as Homer's Odyssey or the story of Atlantis, on the practice of archaeology has my interest. Also, I research the role of museums and archaeological tourist sites for the public image of archaeology and of the past. In this context, I acted as one of the curators for the exhibition Troy. Homer, the city and Turkey from 6 december 2012 until 6 May 2013 in the Allard Pierson Museum, Amsterdam.

Zakynthos

Since 2005, I have been directing archaeological fieldwork on the island of Zakynthos in the Ionian sea. The Zakynthos Archaeology project is a cooperation between the Ephorate of Antiquities at Zakynthos and the Netherlands Institute in Athens. Aim of the project is to relate the spatial and diachronic distribution of finds to the dynamics of the landscape of the island. To this aim a variety of researches are carried out, such archaeological survey and excavation, geological mapping, remote sensing, interviewing and others. For more information, see websites below.
