Profile

I'm approaching to starch grains extracted from residues on archaeological stone artefacts, pottery, soils, and dental calculus of human bone remains for reconstructing prehistoric plant food cultures and human health. Also, through methodologies in archaeological science and botany, I'm examining components of historical papers and it can offer new other information to studies in historical paper materials and preservation and repair works.
