Short Biography

Originary from the Bordeaux region in south-west France, he first studied computer science in a private school in 2011 and then biology and biological anthropology at the University of Bordeaux, France from 2012 to 2017 where he developed an interest for the study of human biology, behaviour and ecology and man’s relationship with the environment. In 2015 he obtained a BSc in molecular and cellular biology and physiology with a specialization in biological anthropology and neurosciences. In 2017 he obtained an MSc in biological anthropology with a specialization in paleobiology with distinction (ranking 1/8), working on dietary reconstruction for children using dental microwear. He is currently a PhD student at OREA, where he is pursuing research in dietary reconstruction and childhood in bronze age Europe.
