Cambridge Global Food Security

An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge


My research interest focuses on the use and development of computational and quantitative methods, in particular the use of agent-based simulations and spatial statistics. I applied these techniques to a variety of research themes, including the study of long-terms changes in settlement patterns, the reconstruction of prehistoric population dynamics, and the statistical inference of cultural transmission modes using archaeological data. I am particular interested in the theoretical and methodological cross-fertilization between biology and archaeology within a cultural evolutionary framework.
