I’m a bioarchaeologist at the crossroads between evolutionary biology and archaeology. My research mainly focus on the biological and cultural history of domestic species. I’m particularly interested in the evolution of the relationship between human societies and domestic plants and animals. I apprehend the impact of humans on domestic species with the help of fine morphometric tools (traditionnal and geometric morphometrics) that allow the analysis of large number of archaeological remains (teeth, bones, seeds).
I’m the PI of the ERC granted project DEMETER that aims at understanding the changes in animal and plant agrobiodiversity (pig, sheep, goat, barley) influenced by environmental and socio-economic factors in the Northwestern Mediterranean basin, since the beginnings of agriculture that occurred 8 millennia ago in the region.
