Dr Myrto Georgakopoulou is UCL Qatar’s Lecturer in Archaeological Materials Science. Her research interests centre on early metal technology, circulation, and organisation of production; pottery provenance studies through the application of chemical analysis and integration with petrographic data; and Aegean prehistory. More broadly she is interested in the application of techniques from the physical sciences to address archaeological questions and the development of analytical protocols for archaeological materials. At UCL Qatar, Dr Georgakopoulou supervises the Archaeological Materials Science Laboratories and contributes to teaching on the MSc in Conservation Studies.

Dr Georgakopoulou holds a PhD in Archaeology and an MSc in Archaeology from the UCL Institute of Archaeology, and a BSc in Chemistry from Imperial College London. Her doctorate addressed the technology and organisation of Early Bronze Age Aegean copper production using material from smelting sites on the Cycladic islands of Seriphos and Keros. She was previously employed at the Fitch Laboratory of the British School at Athens.
