My research focuses on late prehistoric societies and the development of fortification. Currently, my work is part of the ‘Forschungskontinuität und Kontinuitätsforschung’ project under the Academy of Sciences and Literature Mainz. This project aims to integrate legacy research from former East Prussia into modern scholarly research. Along with using historic catalogues of fortification, the research also uses remote sensing data to derive metric data on hillforts for statistical analysis. My qualifications and experience include excavation, field survey, and archaeological geophysics. I am currently contributing to the ROOTS projects ‘Lost Cities’ and ‘INHILLDAUGAR’.
