I currently work at the Dept. of Prehistory & West Asian/Northeast African Archaeology, Austrian Archaeological Institute, Austrian Academy of Sciences. My current research focuses on human-environmental interactions, soilscapes, and a comparative approach to settlement and social organization. I use geoarchaeological and archaeological science methods, particularly archaeological soil chemistry, with GIS-based spatial analysis to reconstruct past social and economic organization and their environmental consequences. Current projects focus on early nucleated villages, environmental change and prehistoric land-use in Hungary, Austria, and Slovakia.
