Research interests

My research focuses on prehistoric subsistence practices and diet. My project aims to assess the importance of aquatic food resources to the first farming societies in Central Europe at the onset of the Neolithic period. This is a key period of Central European genetic and cultural history, marked by the introduction of domestic animals, crops, and ceramic technology from around 5500 cal BC. However, aspects of the Neolithic trajectory in this region remain unclear, including the potential role of fish and other aquatic resources alongside domestic livestock. 

The project involves the analysis of lipids preserved in archaeological pottery, zooarchaeological analysis, and compound-specific amino acid analysis. This interdisciplinary approach aims to provide a greater understanding of the Neolithic transition in Central Europe and highlight the importance of aquatic ecosystems to past human populations.
