Postdoctoral researcher, Marie-Skłodowska-Curie-Actions research fellow University of Barcelona Faculty of Physics Room 303A Project website:   Tom Brughmans is an archaeologist specialised in studying the Roman economy through ceramic data analysis, computational simulation modelling and network science. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Barcelona’s Faculty of Physics where he leads project SIMREC, on simulation modelling of Roman macro-economics (Marie-Skłodowska-Curie-Actions Individual Fellowship). He was previously a Leverhulme research fellow at the University of Oxford’s School of Archaeology where he led project MERCURY (2017-2019, Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship), affiliated with the Oxford Roman Economy Project. He previously held a postdoctoral position at the University of Konstanz Computer Science department where he developed original computational GIS and network methods for studying visibility phenomena in landscape archaeology (EU-HERA project Caribbean Connections; affiliated with ERC-Synergy project NEXUS1492). He holds a PhD and MSc in Roman archaeology through computational methods and Roman tableware studies (University of Southampton), and an MA and BA in Archaeology (KU Leuven).
