Bert Neyt is a researcher at Leuven University. He holds a master diploma in Geology (2005) and a PhD degree in Geology (2012) (both at Leuven University), for which he did research on ancient ceramic provenancing in and around the archaeological site of Sagalassos in southwestern Turkey, specializing in ceramic petrography, geochemical analysis and clay mineralogy.

Bert contributes to the Hera project by making a technological and provenance analysis of the ceramic spectrum from the islands of the Lesser Antilles, by means of ceramic petrography and geochemical analysis of clay raw materials, in order to obtain a better understanding of the continuity and change in indigenous ceramic production in the period AD1000-1800.
