Research Summary

As part of the "Dynamics of the First Human Dispersals" research group of CNRS UMR 7194 ("Natural History of Prehistoric Man") and the MNHN Department of Man and Environment, I pursue research on the evolution of organic sediments in tropical karst settings during the Quaternary. I am particularly interested in their palaeoenvironmental applications, geochemical potential, and impact on archaeological deposits. I am currently investigating the rich guano deposits and the derivative phosphate minerals of Tabon Cave (Palawan, Philippines) in a wider attempt to establish a geochronology for the site, as well as to reconstruct the palaeoenvironmental conditions surrounding the arrival of the first Homo sapiens in the region.
