Biography

I am a paleoanthropologist working on Plio-Pleistocene hominin paleobiology with a particular interest in the evolutionary and adaptive contexts from which the genus Homo emerged. I started my research on the African fossil record within the frame of my PhD at the University of Toulouse (France) in 2012 that focused on the study of nonhominin primates that coexisted with hominins during the Plio-Pleistocene transition in Africa. During my postdoctoral contract at the University of Pretoria (South Africa) in 2016 funded by the Erasmus program AESOP+, I developed a particular interest in the hominin brain evolutionary history. Subsequently, I was granted funding from the Claude Leon Foundation and the Center of Excellence in Palaeosciences to study the fossil hominin assemblage from the site of Sterkfontein as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of the Witwatersrand (South Africa) from 2017 to 2020. I joined the University of Cambridge as a lecturer in 2020.

Research

My research focuses on reconstructing the paleobiology and evolutionary history of early hominins. I explore evidence from the African fossil record (e.g., Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa) to help unravel the history of our own lineage and understand the emergence of some of the most critical human adaptations. Throughout my doctoral and postdoctoral experience in France and South Africa, I have been developing two main lines of research dealing with brain evolution and locomotor behaviour in Australopithecus, Paranthropus and early Homo. As a member of the Sterkfontein Research Team, I contribute to the description of iconic (e.g., Little Foot) and newly discovered fossil specimens from the paleontological sites of the “Cradle of Humankind” in South Africa. Within the frame of the research projects HoN (Human Origins in Namibia) and HOMME (Human Origins in Mozambique and Malawi Environments), I am involved in fieldwork in southern Africa (e.g., Namibia, Mozambique).
