I am a West Asian Archaeologist based in Germany and focused on the methodology of reconstruction of ancient architecture among other things
. I received my degree at the Free University of Berlin
, Germany and my PhD as well with a thesis called “From Layard to Lara Croft. Eurocentric mindset in the visual media of West Asian Archaeology” (translated from German). During my time as a student, I started a company called Artefacts
, that focused on creating visual reconstructions of ancient architecture and worked for various projects.
I am currently a research assistant at the University of Cologne
and work in the newly created master programme of Archaeoinformatics
(Computational Archaeology) as a specialist in 3D Documentation and Modelling. I was also a Fellow for Innovations in Digital Teaching and explore new ways of communicating archaeological knowledge with modern technologies in an associated project
