Short Bio

I am a PhD candidate from the Interdisciplinary Centre for Archaeology and Evolution of Human Behaviour at the University of Algarve. My PhD research funded by the European Research Council (ERC) investigates the environmental setting of archaeological sites occupied by Neaderthals and Homo sapiens in the southern Iberia region using micromammal fossils. I completed my undergraduate (BSc) and postgraduate (BSc Hons & MSc) qualifications at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. My postgraduate dissertations focused on making palaeoenvironmental inferences with the use of micromammal fossils recovered from a cave site occupied by anatomically modern humans along the coast of the Eastern Cape, South Africa.
