My research focuses on parasites in the past and the impact of parasitic infection on humans as well as the impact of humans on the spread and evolution of parasites. This research focusses on techniques including light microscopy and biomolecular identification of parasites from archaeological samples, particularly in and around the Roman Empire from the Bronze Age to Medieval times. I have been involved with excavations of the rural Roman cemetery on the Imperial Estate at Vagnari, Italy since 2011.
