I am a zooarchaeologist and have experience in the analysis of faunal remains dating to different periods: from the early Pleistocene up to early modern times. I became interested in mammalian palaeontology and zooarchaeology when studying archaeology at Leiden University. My PhD, carried out at the University of Bergen dealt with the body-size variability of Holocene reindeer in Norway, population dynamics and dietary reconstruction based on stable isotope analysis. Since obtaining my PhD degree in 2018, I have been working as a zooarchaeologist at the natural history department of the University Museum of Bergen. My main interesets lie in palaeoecology, biogeography and combining traditional approaches such as morphology and osteometry with newer techniques like e.g. stable isotope analysis.

Marine Lexicon

Working with an international, interdisciplinary team from the University of Lisbon and NIFU, and funded by EEA Grants and CHAM, the Marine Lexicon project aims to construct a thesaurus containing the (common) names for marine mammals in ten different languages. Additionally, we will create a list of place names related to the exploitation of marine mammals, and make an inventory of archaeological sites featuring bones of marine mammals.
