I am a prehistorian, working mostly on the European Neolithic but also on Kurdistan. In a diachronic perspective, I am particularly interested in economic and social practices and their evolutionary mechanisms. My group and I are currently working on the evolution of social inequalities. I am also interested in far-reaching exchange networks and their social and economic implications. I often collaborate with sociologists and economists but also with colleagues from statistics and computer science, as well as earth and life sciences. My work is theory-led, methodologically critical and empirical.

Keywords: European archaeology, quantitative archaeology, history, theory and method of archaeology, evolutionary and critical approach, Handlungstheorie
