Dr. Giulia Riccomi is an osteoarchaeologist who studies ancient human skeletal remains within relevant archaeological contexts. She applies an integrated approach to the study of past human groups by bringing together osteology, palaeopathology, biochemical and biomolecular analyses to reconstruct lifeways, human health, susceptibility to disease and foodways.
As a postdoctoral research fellow of the Division of Paleopathology at the Department of Translational Research and New Technologies in Medicine and Surgery (University of Pisa), Dr. Riccomi is committed to integrating biochemical and biomolecular methods within interdisciplinary research frameworks encompassing human palaeopathology, palaeodietary reconstruction and palaeomobility. Dr. Riccomi is also experienced in balancing research and teaching activities, and the training of Master students in human skeletal anatomy, osteoarchaeology, and palaeopathology in the context of university programmes and intensive international courses. Dr. Riccomi has a number of international peer-reviewed publications focusing on the investigation of a variety of Italian archaeological contexts dated between the Iron age and the post-medieval period through bioarchaeology, palaeopathology, and stable isotope analysis.
