I am an environmental archaeologist specialising in the use of radiocarbon and dietary stable isotopes. I work for the ZBSA (Zentrum für Baltische und Skandinavische Archäologie) but my office is in the Leibniz Laboratory for AMS Dating and Stable Isotope Research, Kiel University. As a member of the sub-cluster Dietary ROOTS, I contribute to research on the chronology, economy, health and population genomics of hunter-gatherers and early farmers in Northeastern Europe, and to the interpretation of isotopic proxies for human behaviour.

Keywords: Radiocarbon, stable isotopes, Bayesian chronological modelling, hunter-gatherer-fisher, palaeodiet
