Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am working as a Academy Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy, History, Culture and Art Studies. My project is titled: " Land use, cultivation, and animal husbandry during the Neolithic in North-Eastern Europe between c. 6000 and – 1000 BC "

The aim of the project is to achieve a new kind of understanding of emergence of farming during the Neolithic Stone Age in the North-Eastern Europe (c 5500–2000 BC). There is increasing evidence that the initial stage of cereal cultivation in Northern Europe took placefrom the very beginning of Neolithic Stone Age, ca. 5300 – 4000 onwards. The high resolution multiproxy analyses from lake sediments allow the accurate reconstruction of landscapes, land use, and existence of domesticated plants and animals during the Neolithic.
