Short Bio

Stefano Benazzi is a Full Professor of Physical Anthropology, specializing in Osteoarchaeology and Paleoanthropology. From 2017 to 2022, he led the ERC Consolidator project (SUCCESS); since 2022, he has been a partner in an ERC Advanced project (FIRSTSTEPS), and in 2023, he was announced as the winner of an ERC Synergy (LAST NEANDERTHALS). Currently, he directs the Laboratory of Osteoarchaeology and Paleoanthropology (BONES Lab) at the Department of Cultural Heritage, overseeing archaeological excavations at various Paleolithic sites. His research encompasses the anatomical study of human remains from forensic and archaeological contexts, utilizing scientific approaches to reconstruct population demographics, lifestyle, and health conditions. His studies focus on human evolution, with a particular interest in developing and applying digital methods for reconstructing fragmented bone remains, morphometric analyses of skeletal and dental remains, as well as understanding the relationship between function and morphology in the teeth of both human and non-human primates.
