I am a member of the Institute for the Modelling of Socio-Environmental Transitions (IMSET). As an archaeologist working on Holocene Europe, my research interests include population (pre-)history, long-term human-environment interactions, and modelling. I have conducted fieldwork in Belgium, Syria, the UK, Bosnia&Herzegovina, and Montenegro where I am still actively working.
