Martin Janovský is Ph.D. student at the Department of Ecology, Faculty of Environmental Sciences, Czech University of Life Sciences and at the Department of Archaeology, Faculty Arts, Charles University.

He tries to link archeology and environmental approaches.

Currently, he is analysing soil sediments from Tel Burna, Israel to determine and differentiate deposition and post-deposition processes at the site.

Areas of interest

pXRF analysis, deserted medieval fields, using R in processing geochemical data (spatial data analysis, data processing).
