Yannick Devos is a post-doctoral researcher at the Maritime Cultures Research Institute (MARI) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
Over the last 20 years his research focussed on urban geoarchaeology, especially the micromorphological study of urban Dark Earth, complex microstratified layers and ancient soil pollution.
Other research themes he worked on include the Holocene evolution of the Senne valley in Brussels, phytolith analysis on soil thin sections and issues of site taphonomy and preservation.
Currently he is coordinating the palaeo- and archaeoenvironmental studies in the Brussels Capital Region. He is also responsible for the geoarchaeological studies in the Brussels region, including field study, sampling and micromorphology.
