About Me

Marianne Michel is a Postdoctoral Researcher associated with the Oriental Institute (CIOL) at the University of Louvain (UCLouvain), Belgium. After completing a Master’s in Mathematics (1989) and a Master’s in Ancient and Oriental Language and Letters (2010), she got a PhD in Egyptology (2013) that focused on “Ancient Egyptian Mathematics” going from hieratic sources of the Middle Kingdom to demotic sources of the Ptolemaic Period. She has done some research about “technical” fields (stone quarries, buildings, statues, bread-making, brewing and beekeeping). She worked also on the first campaign of Thutmose III that concerned Megiddo. She is currently working on unpublished ushabti (funerary figurines). She is also a Company Administrator of the Royal Belgian Society of Oriental Studies (RBSOS) and Assistant Editor of the BABELAO, an Electronic Journal for Ancient and Oriental Studies.
