As of February 1, I commence as a PhD student at the School of Culture and Society, Archaeology and Heritage Studies with Felix Riede as main supervisor.

During my PhD-project I will be investigating the nature of the very first pioneers in northern Europe at the end of the last Ice Age. In particular, the project focuses on the identification of individuals of the Late Glacial Hamburgian culture in North-West-Europe and its implications for understanding past adaptation and culture change in the Final Palaeolithic. Furthermore, the project aims at questioning long held assumptions on the chronological development and proposing new cultural and social dynamics in the period.

I obtained a BA degree in Prehistoric Archaeology at Aarhus University in 2016 and continued on my masters until being accepted by the PhD programme. I have from the beginning of my study period had a strong focus on the Older Stone Age and have parallel with my studies worked as a student helper at the Laboratory for Past Disaster Science (LAPADIS) as well as gone abroad to participate in conferences and excavations concerning this period in Prehistory.
