As IT Officer at the BSA I am responsible for developing and maintaining the IT infrastructure of the School, interfacing with all departments and helping to organize administration, research, and outreach. Parallel to this I am pursuing my own research, which is focused on ancient economic history, especially amphora trade and production in the Aegean and the Black Sea. I am also interested in the archaeology of ancient Thrace, burial practices, and monumental tomb architecture.
I received a PhD in Classical Archaeology from Sofia University and I held a Mellon Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and Kress Publication Fellowship at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
