My work is situated between the fields of archaeology and anthropology, with a focus on social-, quantitative- and collaborative archaeology. My current project has a broad chronological and geographical scope, covering the last eight millennia of hunter-gatherer settlement on the West Siberian Plain. It places particular emphasis on the interdependence between different forms of inequality, conflict, and social and environmental assets. Dealing with forager fortifications and associated transformations of the natural and social landscape, I am especially concerned with the question how socio-environmental inequalities affect societies and what resilience strategies people develop to counteract them.

Keywords: Social archaeology, quantitative archaeology, collaborative archaeology, hunter-gatherer research, West Siberia, socio-environmental inequality, conflict, social resilience
