Main research interests:
- Agricultural practices and decision-making in the past, especially among smallholders during the Neolithic period (5500-2500 cal BC) in Western Europe.
- Wild plant management in Prehistoric societies, especially during the Neolithic period, but also in the Mesolithic and Bronze Age.
- Social organization of labour and consumption practices in the past.
- Taphonomy, with a particular interest on (mainly charred) plant remains.
- Gender roles in economy from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age and their effects on the health and social status of men and women.
