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.
