Department of Archaeology

Main Focus

Niklas researches coastal sites and climate proxies around the world and actively collaborates with projects in Spain, Greece, UK, Ireland, Italy, Tunisia, Turkey, Malta, Croatia, Libya, Israel, Brazil, Canada, USA, Tanzania, Oman, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Japan and Australia.

He uses a multidisciplinary approach to archaeology, by working with a variety of analytical research methods. Most notably, these are stable isotopes, trace elements, and growth incremental analysis. Alongside these, he focuses on the parallel development of new technological and methodological approaches, to push further our ability to interpret human coastal life and past environments. 

Most recently, he developed a fast and cheap method for high-resolution elemental analysis of marine shells with the aim to make climatic data more accessible and their study more achievable for researchers in countries with limited funding. The results of this project, are publicly available on the ACCELERATE project website.
