Overall, his research focuses on the application of state of the art scientific techniques on the study of ancient glass as a mean for: a. the reconstruction of ancient technological aspects, b. identification of changing technological practices through space and time, c. the provenance of ancient materials, d. the integration of scientific results with key archaeological questions. On top of his research focus on glass, he is also involved in various interdisciplinary archaeological projects,both as primary researcher and research associate,identifying technologies of other materials such as pottery and frescoes.
