Research interests:

The study of the human past is my broadest professional interest. Specifically, I focus on the genomics of ancient human populations by directly accessing their DNA. The main questions I research about are migrations, population affinities, and trait selection, with an interest in the Neolithic and Bronze population movements in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean islands. Methodological experimentation, protocols development, and optimization of existing ones for ancient DNA is also a topic I work on extensively.

Research interests:

I have a special interest in Human Bioarchaoelogy, Forensic Anthropology and Chemical Anthropology with a special focus on ancient cremations and burned bones. I am currently coordinating the HOT Project. The main objectives are to improve our understanding of heat-induced changes to bone and teeth and to improve analytical methods that are specific to burned skeletal remains.

Research interests:

BSc in Anthropology from the University of Lisbon, with the specialty of Ethno-Cultural and Biological Anthropology Relations (2003). Holds a Post Gradutate Diploma in Human Evolution at the University of Coimbra (2007) and Master in Evolution and Human Biology also from the University of Coimbra. His Phd was in Biological Anthropology and Ethnoecology at Univeraidade Nova de Lisboa and Cardiff University-UK, having been awarded the title of Doctor Europaeus (2013). His postdoctoral studies were performed on the recently created  HPI-Lab (Laboratory for Infectious Diseases Common to Human and Non Human Primates) in Brno, Czech Republic, belonging to the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences (2012-2014).

He has experience in Molecular Ecology area and Mastozoology, being expert in Primatology, but also in Parasitology, Conservation Genetics , Phylogeography and Ethnobiology of African primates with emphasis on West Africa and especially in Guinea-Bissau, where he works since 2007. Its research interests relate to Intersectionality between Biology, Ecology, Biodiversity Conservation (and in general of other species), Emerging and neglected infectious diseases, primate aging and longevity,  and ethno-cultural perceptions of wildlife. Methodologically he applies a myriad of comprehensive techniques in his studies; i.e. genetic, parasitological and ethnographic.

Research interests:

I received my Bachelors Degree in Anthropology, from Faculty of Social and Humanities Sciences, New University of Lisbon in 2008, and my Masters degree in Evolution and  Human Biology, from the Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Coimbra in 2010. My Masters dissertation consisted in determining if occupation and physical activity influenced the bone degeneration rate at the pubic symphysis and iliac auricular surface in 19th and 20th centuries male Portuguese of known age. I received my PhD from the Department of Archaeology, University of Sheffield (U.K.) in 2016. My PhD research consisted in determining if body size influenced the bone degeneration rate at the pelvic joints.

I have a keen interest at the field of age at death estimation, especially determining which factors influence bone degeneration in adults, in order to understand bone metamorphosis and how that may influence age at death estimation by skeletal remains. I also have been involved on the study of age estimation of immature individuals; cremated remains’ analysis; and the establishment of sex diagnosis methods. Currently, I am also involved in Paleopatological and epidemiological studies of past populations; and on the investigation of secular trends on femoral sexual dimorphism in Portuguese individuals since the 19th century.
