He also received his PhD from the Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering of the same University and to date is the first systematic study of archaic glass from Greece.
During the years 2014-2016 he was awarded a prestigious Marie Curie Post-Doctoral Fellowship (IEF) at the Dept. of Archaeology, Nottingham University where he also received an Honorary Research Fellow award from the same Dept. In addition, during the academic year 2007-2008 he has received the Geoarchaeology Fellowship of the Wiener Lab at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
Artemios’ research focuses on the application of state of the art scientific techniques on the study of ancient materials and especially glass as a mean for: a. the identification of ancient technological aspects, b. answering archaeological questions in relation to the reconstruction of ancient technologies, c. changing technological practices through space and time, d. the provenance of ancient materials, e. the fusion of scientific results with aspects of the humanities. As an archaeological scientist, he is involved in various interdisciplinary archaeological projects, both as primary researcher and research associate, in the broad field of Archaeological Science.
He has authored and co-authored research papers in edited volumes, peer reviewed scientific journals and conference proceedings (see the attached Curriculum Vitae for details), while he has participated in more than 30 international and national conferences with oral and poster presentations. Furthermore, he is a reviewer in four International Scientific Journals (Journal of Archaeological Science (Reports), Archaeometry, Journal of Archaeological and Anthropological Sciences and Journal of Mediterranean Archaeology & Archaeometry).
Finally, he is a member of national and international professional organisations such as the Hellenic Society of Archaeometry (elected member), the Society of Archaeological Sciences (SAS), the American Ceramic Society (ACerS) the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and the Association Internationale pour l’ Histoire du Verre (AIHV).
