Short Bio

After graduating in Archaeology and Art History at Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne as well as in École du Louvre (2012), I did my Masters and PhD in PACEA laboratory (University of Bordeaux), working under the supervision of Prof. J. Jaubert and Prof. A.I. Krivoshapkin. My doctoral studies focused on characterising the Levallois chaîne opératoire in the Altai region (Russian Federation), in partnership with Novosibirsk State University and the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

In 2021, I was awarded a Fyssen Foundation post-doctoral fellowship to conduct research at ICArEHB on lithic raw material extraction in the Middle Palaeolithic of the Central Balkans.
