Chrysovalantis Constantinou



We are an odd group consisting of an archeologist and a nuclear physicist.

Chrysovalantis Constantinou studied applied mathematics at the Technical University of Athens, Greece, and because that was not hard enough, he decided to continue his studies in theoretical nuclear physics at the University of Notre Dame, IN, USA. He has an interest in teaching and communicating science in a way that is as fun and interesting as possible. He got into web development and machine learning later in life and he enjoys building things such as websites, 3D websites, models, etc. His childhood dream was to become an astronomer and be the first to discover alien life (there is still no evidence so there is hope).

Efthymia Nikita is Assistant Professor in Bioarchaeology at the Science and Technology in Archaeology and Culture Research Center, The Cyprus Institute. She holds a BA in Archaeology from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and a PhD in Biological Anthropology from the University of Cambridge. Her research explores the activity, mobility, demography, health, and diet of past populations. In addition, she is engaged in refining the available osteoarchaeological methodology for the study of commingled remains, biodistances, and activity markers. Her research has resulted in over 70 articles and book chapters, including the textbook ‘Osteoarchaeology: A Guide to the Macroscopic Study of Human Skeletal Remains’, published by Elsevier, which received an honorable mention at the American Publishers Awards. She is currently co-Editor in Chief for the second edition of the Encyclopedia of Archaeology (Elsevier), as well as Associate Editor for the Journal of Archaeological Science and Archaeological and Anthropological Sciences.
