My activity

I am a postdoctoral researcher interested in the interactions between equids and past human societies. My project (SPUR) is funded by the ANR (Access ERC program) and aims to assess how human management has progressively shaped domestic equids over the last millennia. I study bone structure, examining it both externally and internally (notably through 3D geometric morphometrics and microanatomical studies) with particular interest in morpho-functional investigations. The objective is to better understand how equids where used, managed and bred in the past, and how they have in turn deeply influenced human history.
