My current research interests are focused on the biological anthropology of ageing and longevity. Specifically, I study the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms, such as DNA methylation, that create phenotypic diversity in different human groups. My research also falls in the field of human ecology, where I investigate the relationship between humans and their natural, social, and cultural environments. Furthermore, my work is devoted to the study of innovative biomarkers for age estimation in the anthropological field.
