Nota biografica

My research mainly focuses on human functional morphology with a bioarchaeological and an evolutionary perspective, with a specific focus on the reconstruction of past human behaviour, lifestyle, mobility, dietary habits, and other social and environmental patterns. After completing a master’s degree in archaeology at the University of Bologna with a dissertation in bioarchaeology, I am now involved in a PhD project dedicated to the understanding of shape and biomechanical variations of the human ankle among extant apes (Pongo, Pan, Gorilla) and modern humans. Specifically, I study how morphological and biomechanical changes in the human fibula may relate to biological variations determined by sexual dimorphism or different body sizes, to different functional requirements determined by high vs. low mobility and activity intensity, and to different terrain types and locomotor strategy. I also teach laboratory sessions and mentor master students for their final dissertation projects Vai al Curriculum
