Chantzi Paraskevi is a Civil Engineer, AUTH, with master degree in faculty of Science. Since 2012 till today she is research collaborator in the scientific team of Dr Dotsika Elissavet in project of Material and Environmental Isotope Geochemistry of Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (INN) at the National Center for Scientific Research (NCSR) “Demokritos’. A significant part of her research involves stable (18O, 13C, D) and radiogenic (Sr, Nd, 14C) isotope methods for tracing the origin of raw materials, constructing paleoenvironments and paleodiets through different types of archaeological findings (bones teeth, mortars, speleothems, sediments etc.) as well as technology of advanced materials. Since 2012 she is a PhD candidate at the School of Geology, Department of Physical and Environmental Geography, AUTH. Her thesis (completed in the first half of 2016) has been carried out in cooperation with the Stable Isotope Unit at the NCSR "Demokritos" entitled as "Study of paleohydrological and paleoclimatic conditions in the Basin of Kastoria Lake using isotopic methods”. As part of her doctoral dissertation bone/teeth findings and sediment samples from the excavation of the prehistoric lakeside settlement of Dispilio Kastoria were analyzed based on isotope (stable isotopes and radiocarbon) geochemistry techniques in order to reconstruct the paleoecological conditions in the area. The same analyzes were performed in speleothems (18O, 13C, 14C) from the karstic system of the basin as well as in water samples. Part of her work has been published in international journals and conferences.
