Research interests:

Applying new and innovative technologies to study the past is my broadest professional interest. Specifically speaking, I focus on the genomics of prehistoric human populations by directly accessing ancient DNA of Mesolithic and Neolithic individuals. The main questions I research about are migrations and trait selection, with an interest in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean islands, during the Neolithic expansions into Europe. I also have some interest in the Bronze and Iron age periods. Methodological experimentation and protocol optimizations for ancient DNA is also a topic that I work on.

Research interests:

My main interest is focused on the study of past funerary practices throughout an archaeothanatological approach. I have also a special interest in excavation and digital recording (using ArcGIS, digital planning and 3D documentation) of funerary/mortuary contexts.

 

Ongoing Projects:

Currently I’m finishing my Doctoral Thesis based on an anthropological and archaeological approach of three collective Late Neolithic tombs from southern Portugal. This approach is based on Archaeothanatological principles and GIS tools use.

I participate also in the project “Caçadores-Recolectores e Sociedades Agro-Pastoris: territórios e paisagens culturais no Vale do Sado, na primeira metade do Holocénico – SADO-MESO II”.

DGPC project. Coord. Pablo Arias Cabal (Univerdidad de Cantabria) and Mariana Diniz; (Universidade de Lisboa).

Research interests:

My research theme is the evolution of phenotypic variation, particularly shape (using morphometrics), the relationship between form and function, and the computer modelling of phenotypic evolution.

O meu tema de investigação é a evolução da variação fenotípica, sobretudo da forma (usando a morfometria), das relações entre a forma e a função, e a modelação computacional da evolução fenotípica.

 

Mon thème de recherche est l'évolution de la variation phénotypique, surtout de la forme (avec de la morphometrie), des liens entre la forme et la fonction, et la modéllisation de l’évolution phénotypique.
