Digital Archaeologist at Amsterdam Centre of Ancient Studies and Archaeology
Coordinator of the 4D Research Lab (4DRL)
My research engages with archaeological prospection, (UAS) remote sensing, Geo-ICT, statistics, 3D modeling, eXtended Reality and Blended Learning. My working area is the whole of Europe, with a specific focus on Mediterranean Archaeology. In the 4DRL I examine the application of 3D technology for research and educational purposes, ranging from 3D Scanning to Virtual Reconstruction, from both applied technological- as well as theoretical perspectives.
