Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in the application of bioarchaeological techniques to understand diet, economy and subsistence in past societies. I mainly concentrate on the use of stable isotopes to investigate these themes in historic societies of the Meditteranean, particularly where issues of cultural coexistence, social identity and political conquest may be explored. I also have expertise in the application of ancient DNA analysis to ancient human and animal populations.
