A woman with long brown hair, tattoos on her arms, wearing round glasses and a headset, is engrossed in her laptop. The laptop gets a striking "Planet of the Apes" sticker featuring Caesar's scary-looking face.

I am a doctoral researcher at the Archaeology department and a member of the Deep History of Human Past research group.

My research focuses on the taphonomic assessment of potential early human impact on fossil small mammal faunas over the last 1.6 million years from the Afar Region of Ethiopia within the context of human biological and cultural evolution.
