I spent an academic year as a traveling fellow in Copenhagen, where I was able to work with the leading specialists in Old Assyrian studies. My research project is inspired by this collaboration with the Old Assyrian Text Project (OATP) together with my intention to remove the major obstacle of name ambiguity through graphical and social network analysis.

Thesis title: The Old Assyrian Social Network: an analysis based on the ‘old texts’ from Kültepe (Kaneš)
