Burke, Ariane


My research themes revolve around the Middle Paleolithic and the transition to the Upper Paleolithic, with an emphasis on subsistence lifestyles and human population dispersal models.

I am especially interested in the impact of climate change and connections with the paleoenvironment. Archaeozoology has also led me to do research on the paleoethology and taxonomy of equids and bone and tooth growth patterns as well as ethnoarchaeozoology studies. I currently head the ecomorphology laboratory and the Hominid Dispersals Research Group (HDRG).

Areas of expertise

Current projects

  • Dispersion des populations humaines en Europe au cours du Dernier Maximum Glaciaire
  • Impact de la variabilite climatique sur l'environnement et la mobilite des hominides (Groupe de Recherche sur les Dispersions d'Hominides HDRG).
  • Etude de la cognition spatial: les differences entre hommes et femmes et leurs implications evolutives.
  • Comportement et structure sociale des hemiones (Khulan) et leurs implications paleoethologiques..
