Research

Her scientific activity mainly deals with

  • Solid state dosimetry
  • Development and application of the  techniques for luminescence dating of ceramic and geological materials
  • Optical properties of defects in natural and amorphous SiO2
  • Study and characterisation of archaeological and geological materials: ceramics, archaeological glasses, flints, archaeometallurgical slags, clay cores, geological sediments
