My research interests include but are not limited to ancient agriculture, past human diets, and Chinese archaeology. With multiple research approaches in archaeobotany, my study focuses on revealing the potential interlinkage between population intensities, environmental conditions, social complexities, and agricultural patterns in Neolithic Northern China. My current research area of interest is widening from the east of the Eurasian continent to the west. Plant microfossil analysis is applied to archaeological artefacts to reveal plant diets, food preparation techniques, and eventually, the economic dynamics of Neolithic societies in Northern Germany.
