Research interests
I am a palaeolithic archaeologist, broadly fascinated by the archaeological and behavioural signatures of “What makes us humans”. My research focus is on the origins of modern humans, the Neanderthal extinction, and the concept of behavioural modernity. I am particularly interested in the interactions between culture and biological evolution, as well as in the cultural, social and demographic processes of prehistoric hunter-gatherers from both a synchronic and diachronic perspective.
