My research is focused on small mammal assemblages of Middle and Late Pleistocene of Europe. I am particularly interested in systematics and morphologic evolution of arvicolids.

For my PhD, I studied the morphological and morphometric variations in the first lower molars of the Common and Field Voles (Microtus arvalis and M. agrestis) coming from several sites located in Spain, Italy, France, Belgium, and Hungary.

After my PhD, I worked as Alexander von Humboldt post-doctoral fellow at the University of Tübingen (Germany, 2020-2022), analysing the small mammal assemblages of Hohle Fels and Langmahdhalde (SW Germany) and teaching the course “Microvertebrate in Archaeological Context” in the Master Program. I also collaborated in the study of the M. agrestis from the Middle Pleistocene site of Schöningen.

My current research is aiming to refine the paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental reconstructions of Late Pleistocene sites of Ach and Lone Valleys (SW Germany).
