The topic of the researches is the study of human skeletal remains in the evolutive and bioarchaoelogical perspectives with application in forensic field.
The specific lines are:
Biology and behavior of humans in the transitional periods (Middle/Upper Paleolithic and Neolithic; roman/medieval).
Muscoloskeletal stress markers (MSM) in archaeological and identified human skeletal collections.
Infectious diseases in archaeological and identified human skeletal collections.
Funerary rituals from Upper Paleolithic to modern periods.
Methods for the reconstruction of human profile and identification using identified human skeletal
