Short Bio

Stefano Benazzi is a Full Professor in Physical Anthropology, with special interest in Paleoanthropology and Osteoarchaeology. Since 2017 he coordinates an ERC consolidator grant (n. 724046 – SUCCESS), which aims to understand when modern humans arrived in Southern Europe, the biocultural processes that favoured their successful adaptation and the final cause of Neandertal extinction. His research fields include the anatomical study of human remains from forensic and archaeological contexts, exploiting scientific methods to reconstruct the key biological attributes that are used to reconstruct, e.g., demographic profiles of the population, lifestyle and health conditions. He is particularly keen to develop and apply computer-based methods for the purposes of bone reconstruction and shape analysis of skeletal remains, and dental morphometric study. He also investigates the relationship between function and morphology in human and non-human primate teeth by means of digital methods. Go to the Curriculum vitae
