Ph.D student


My research interests lie in craft production, technological developments, and migration patterns of the Yellow River Valley, Neolithic China. My main focus has been petrographic analysis on ceramic samples and geological materials, investigating the Neolithic ceramic production in relation to the social status of craftsmen, labor division, and transmission of knowledge.
