I hold two positions at the department, both as a doctoral student and as a project assistant in the VISEAD project.

PhD project

My work mainly deals with the change in both the environment and the settlement pattern in northern Sweden. I am interested in the application of new analytical methods on archaeological settlement material in order to discuss the relationships between settlements in the region, as well as how these have changed. I will also be compiling pollen studies from the region, and climate data, in order to study vegetational, climate, and landscape change.

The VISEAD project

As a project assistant in the VISEAD project my work mainly concerns the compilation, quality assurance, and import of new data to the SEAD database. This includes data from ceramic, dendrochronological, istope- as well as lipids analyses.
