Bianca Preda-Bălănică

I am a Romanian archaeologist who spent the last ten years studying Yamnaya burials in southeast Europe. I am currently based at the University of Helsinki, working as a postdoctoral researcher in the ‘Yamnaya Impact on Prehistoric Europe’ ERC Advanced Project, studying the funerary archaeology, burials customs and material culture of the Yamnaya populations, as well as their interactions with and impact on local societies.

Within the ECA Community I am involved in developing a mentoring program, which aims to offer professional guidance and support to early career archaeologists.
