Assistant Professor, University of Warsaw

Paulina Komar

Paulina is Assistant Professor at the University of Warsaw. She is broadly interested in wine consumption, trade, and economy in the ancient and Byzantine world, especially as evident in transport amphoras of the Mediterranean and Black Sea regions. Her PhD was written at Warsaw within the framework of the project "The Eastern Mediterranean from the 4th century BC until Late Antiquity," after which she completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow with a research grant from the Polish National Science Centre. This work led to her monograph titled Eastern Wines on Western Tables: Consumption, Trade and Economy in Ancient Italy, among other publications. In 2021 she was awarded a scholarship for outstanding young scientists from the Polish Ministry of Education and Science. Currently she conducts fieldwork in Cyprus and Georgia, and is working on two projects financed by a grant from the Polish National Science Centre: “REM: Roman Economy and Military,” and “Market Economy or Oriental Bazaar?” which explores the nature of the Roman economy based on the distribution of amphoras in Italy. She worked on modeling interaction during her time in the lab in Spring 2022.
