Emese VÉGH

Emese Végh is currently a Postdoctoral Lab Technician, setting up the new radiocarbon dating laboratory and from September she is starting a Postdoctoral Researcher position in palaeoproteomics, both at the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology, University of Vienna. She is also an Early Career Researcher at the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art (RLAHA), University of Oxford. She completed her DPhil (PhD) in scientific archaeology at the University of Oxford, which focused on the diagenesis and thermal stability of bioapatite, bone microbial bioerosion, molecular structure and composition, and biomechanical response of taphonomic bone. She is currently very interested in the environmental factors and age-induced degradation of both the organic and inorganic phases of bone and the interaction between the two fractions, especially in an evolutionary anthropological context. She particularly enjoys data analyses, multivariate statistics, and programming in Python to find new ways of solving archaeological research questions.
