Andrei Asăndulesei’s main research interest is prehistoric archaeology, with special focus on interdisciplinary investigations of prehistoric sites. He has been involved as member in several ethnoarchaeological or interdisciplinary-archaeological research projects, having as main tasks GIS spatial analyses and non-destructive prospecting. In 2014–2017 he coordinated a research project aimed at elaborating and applying a model of non-intrusive research in prehistoric sites from the region of Moldavia.
Research interests: Prehistoric archaeology, archaeometry, non-invasive archaeology.
