Giulio Lucarini - MedAfrica Research Associate     McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge, UK Lecturer in Prehistory and Protohistory, University of Naples L’Orientale, Italy; ismeo, rome, italy   Giulio's research has focused on human adaptations to the environment and on the emergence of food production in North Africa. He is interested in the study of material culture, especially lithic production and function, and how artefact assemblages reflect socio-economic change and a modification in the human-environment interaction. A further interest lies in the study and preservation of Saharan rock art sites. He is the Co-Director of the Farafra Oasis Archaeological Project, Egypt and the central tunisian archeological project.

Graeme Barker     Former Disney Professor of Archaeology and Director of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge, UK   The focus of Graeme's research can broadly be described as `human landscapes', the relations, both short- and long-term, between people and environment in the past. The transitions to farming have been a particular focus for many years, but more recently his interests have moved backwards in time to the origins of modern human behaviour and the adaptations made by our species in their migrations out of Africa.

Katerina Douka     Group Leader, Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, Germany  William Golding Research Fellow, Brasenose College, University of Oxford, UK   Katerina's research revolves around the construction of robust chronologies for prehistoric sites using advanced radiocarbon dating and Bayesian methods. She is particularly interested in resolving the timing, nature and palaeoclimatic background of prehistoric population movements, such as the dispersal of the first modern humans and the spread of farming across the eastern Mediterranean.
