Researcher in focus

Dr Lea Drieu

My research interests are focused primarily on pottery function by applying Organic Residue Analysis (ORA), of ceramic vessels from the Mediterranean. I am particularly interested in specificities related to vessel use in this area: commodities (plant oils, wine, fruits, etc.) and the preservation of organic matter, which is related to the Mediterranean climate and the geological environment.
