My research focuses on the history of agriculture and the exploitation of plant resources in the North-Western Mediterranean, from the time of the last hunter-gatherers, based on the study of archaeological macroremains (archaeobotany). My work follows two main research axes:
• Dynamics of cultivated plants and agro-pastoral systems in southern France, in relation to environmental, economic and cultural changes
• Origin and evolution of viticulture: grapevine domestication, documenting the diversity of ancient vine cultivars and their changes through time and space.
I also coordinate the Bioindicators service and supervise the archaeobotanical technical platform at ISEM.
