Her research focuses on the archaeology of technological landscapes, notably in the Aegean. She has a particular interest in the reproduction of technological practice and transmission of technological knowledge within and across different landscapes, through time, aiming at understanding social roles and identities of producers and consumers, as well as cultural boundaries within and across societies. Her work mainly concerns the study and integrated analysis of archaeological ceramics (through ceramic petrology and chemistry), combined with extensive research landscape resources, replication experiments and, often, ethnoarchaeology. She has co-directed three large-scale projects:
Kythera Island Project
Central Macedonia and Aegean Networks in LBA-EIA;
In and Out the Stream: Pottery Production and Exportation on Aegina from Prehistory through to Modern Times.
