Doctoral Student – Assistant
She was employed at the Institute of Archaeology in 2018. As a part of the doctoral thesis „Hunter gatherers’ diet across the Pleistocene – Holocene transition on the eastern Adriatic coast – mammal and mollusk assemblages from Vlakno cave (Dugi otok)” she deals with the adaptation of human populations to changes in the paleoenvironment and subsistence strategies. With a background in prehistory, she is a collaborator on two Croatian Science Foundation projects in which she analyzes animal remains. On the project "Iron Age female identities in the southern part of the Carpathian Basin" (FEMINE) (leader: M. Dizdar) she deals with the role of animal remains in women’s graves. She researches diet, economy, and paleoenvironment through analyzes of animal remains of mammals and mollusks, as well as plant macrofossils, within the project "Transforming the Adriatic cosmos: island, connection and glocal identities of pre-Roman Dalmatia" (AdriaCos) (leader: M. Ugarković).
In her scientific work, she is interested in questions of human-animal relations, changes in subsistence strategies, nutrition, and economy using archaeozoological and archaeobotanical methods.
