Research Interests

I work on archaeobotany and archaeogenetics, in the context of the broader archaeology of food. My current research interests include:

  • The spread of farming across Asia, currently in the context of the Domestication of Europe project and the FOGLIP project
  • Food sharing in the Upper Palaeolithic, currently in the context of the Moravian Gate project
  • The development of agrarian societies and their food economies in later prehistory and historic periods
