After completing a DPhil at the University of Oxford on the radiocarbon dating of late Neanderthals and early modern humans in Iberia I moved to the ANU, and until 2015 was responsible for the preparation of samples for radiocarbon dating in the ANU radiocarbon facility.

Fish otolith geochemistry, environmental conditions and human occupation at Lake Mungo, Australia, 78, 10-23.

In both Iberia and many locations in Australia and South East Asia, preservation of bone collagen (the fraction of bone targeted for radiocarbon) is exceptionally poor, hampering accurate dating of human and faunal material.

The timing and spatio-temporal patterning of Neanderthal disappearance. When you want to buy some apples you can only choose Granny Smiths; Golden Delicious or Braeburns. Over the past few decades there has been a drive to make food and drink taste the same.

Popular science articles about radiocarbon dating My research focuses on the production of accurate radiocarbon dates that can be used to build chronologies. My DECRA aims to examine diagenesis of tooth enamel to determine whether it might be possible to obtain accurate dates directly on skeletal material where collagen does not survive. F., Maíllo-Fernández, J-M., Marom, A., Maroto, J., Menendez, M., Metz, L., Morin, E., Moroni, A., Negrino, F., Panagopoulou, E., Peresani, M., Pirson, S., de la Rasilla, M., Riel-Salvatore, J., Ronchitelli, A., Santamaria, D., Semal, P., Slimak, L., Soler, J., Soler, N., Villaluenga, A., Pinhasi, R. Radiocarbon dates on enamel are often found to be inaccurate, and this project aims to find out why and investigate how to remove or avoid the contamination.
