Naihui is a PhD student of FINDER project. FINDER stands for Fossil Fingerprinting and Identification of New Denisovan Remains from Pleistocene Asia, aims to identify hominin remains among fragmented bones from key archaeological sites. Naihui will focus on finding huminin remains from tiny bones in China. The identification of these remains will be completed through a combination of techniques including ZooMS collagen fingerprinting, radiocarbon dating, stable isotope analysis, and ancient DNA.
Tentative PhD Project title: The application of biomolecular and palaeoproteomics approaches in the Pleistocene record of China
