I am a PhD candidate at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel using isotopic analysis to answer questions related to migration, mobility and land-use in past populations. I completed my Archaeometry Masters in 2022 from the University Bordeaux-Montaigne by doing an internship at the VUB, where I used Sr analysis to understand mobility and dietary patterns of the roman population of Tienen (Belgium). My PhD is part of the LUMIERE project and will use the same tools, to understand mobility patterns in Croatian populations from the Bronze Age to the Roman Period, with a focus on cremated human remains.
