Research interests
I am broadly interested in human evolution, with particular emphasis on the processes that bring populations in contact to differentiate both culturally and biologically, and the impact that such differences have in the formation and maintenance of population boundaries. Material and behavioural cultural expressions together with biological (particularly genetic) markers are the focus of my data collection and analysis, both in the archaeological record and in the living ethnographic one.
