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.
