About Me

I am a Siberian woman with a strong interest in human-environment interaction in the past. My previous research experiences include 3D-modelling in archaeology, spatial analysis of archaeological sites distribution in conjunction with palaeoenvironmental data, 7 years of field works in Russia and Europe as well as variable internships, participation in different international conferences and field schools.

About my project

My current research is devoted to hunter-gatherer impact on landscapes during the Eemian (last interglacial) and the Mesolithic. I am going to investigate different ways of hunter-gatherer environmental transformations with a specific focus on anthropogenic burning. In order to clarify the role of humans in the past environmental changes, I am going to incorporate a wide range of palaenvironmental and archaeological data, and conduct agent-based modelling in conjunction with GIS and further statistical analyses.
