Carmen is a Researcher at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) working in archaeo-geophysics. Her research has mainly focused in developing integrated geophysical & soil physico-chemical characterisation methods to maximise proxy data interpretation of buried archaeological sites and landscapes. Carmen is the Chair of COST Action SAGA.
