Curriculum Vitae

Current position: PhD in Hominin Behaviour and Environments of Pleistocene West Africa

Jacopo Niccolò Cerasoni completed his B.Sc. in Archaeology and Forensic Science at the University of Exeter (UK), with a dissertation focusing on the environmental reconstruction of Southern Jê landscapes in South Brazil. Subsequently, he achieved an M.A. in Archaeology at the University of Exeter, researching human-environment relationships in the Plio-Pleistocene Rift Valley, comparing known ecological and dietary records to modern primatological studies. Conjointly with the study of environmental sciences, he developed skills in lithic analysis, computational archaeology and field investigation methods after working in a variety of contexts, chronologies and countries both in academic and commercial projects. He finally studied as a Master’s student in the programme on Quaternary Archaeology and Human Evolution, in association with the Universitat Rovira i Virgili and the Institut Català de Paleoecologia i Evolució Humana in Tarragona (ES). His research interests focus upon the study of Pleistocene hominin technological behaviour, human-environment relationships and field survey and excavation techniques.
