Research topic: The sanjak of Tirhala; tracing and defining the local ceramic production of Ottoman Thessaly (15th-19th ce.)

Anastasia completed her Bachelor in Archaeology and Art History in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2016 and continued gaining her Masters at the University of Bonn, Germany.
Her Master thesis focused on tobacco consumption and trading in Ottoman Palestine, as it was witnessed through the surviving smoking pipes from the region. Her research continued with joining a PhD program in 2021 at the Bonn Institute for Graduate Students- Oriental and Asian Studies (BIGS-OAS).

Her doctoral thesis aims in taking a step towards the reconstruction of the Ottoman past of the region of modern day Thessaly, Greece, through the study of the material remains. Ceramic assemblages dating between the 15th and 19th centuries will be used in investigating interrelationships and connections, as well as identity shaping and daily life in a more ‘’bottom-up’’ approach of the local populations, as reflected in the local ceramic production.

From February till July 2023, she will be joining the Cyprus Institute as part of a short fellowship program at the STARC.
