I am a Lecturer in Geography at Bath Spa University in the UK. My interests span archaeology, cultural ecology and Quaternary palaeoecology, but I'm particularly interested in biological proxies for past environmental change, especially molluscs, but also foraminifera and bryozoans. I blog at http://matthewlaw.wordpress.com, and am on twitter @m_law.
Suzanne is an Assistant Professor at the University of Georgia, USA, with a joint appointment in the departments of Anthropology and Geography. and Director of the Quaternary Isotope Paleoecology Laboratory at the Center for Applied Isotope Studies. Her research combines archaeology with biogeochemistry to investigate how humans adapted to climate change in prehistory. Other research interests include the initial domestication of livestock, diffusion of domesticates across Eurasia, the transition from hunting to herding, seasonality and human mobility, multispecies archaeology, and advancing methodologies in zooarchaeology and stable isotope analysis. She is an active advocate of open access publishing and online data and research sharing. For more information and publications visit https://uga.academia.edu/SuzannePilaarBirch.
I've got a special interest in the development of new approaches at the frontier of different disciplines, such as the transposition of moleclar ecology of functionnal ecology to sediment records, or the integration of paleoclimate, plaeoecology and archaeological facts.
