Lumiere, Prehistoric societies in the mirror of mobility

I am joining the BB-LAB in January as a PhD candidate, in cotutelle between Aix Marseille Université and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

My thesis project, funded by Inrap (France), aims at better understanding the human mobility patterns during the Bronze Age in the north-east of France. Mobility is historically approached through material culture; here the objective is to put the human back at the centre of the questions, thanks to strontium analyses on human cremated remains.

I completed an archaeological master's degree in Aix Marseille Université, working on dietary practices during the protohistory, in Auvergne, using stable isotopic analyses (C,N,S).I therefore have a strong archaeological background and a love for archaeological excavations, to which I participate every summer since 2017.
