My research interests include animal remains and different aspects of the significance of animals for human communities in the past, especially in the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic. Concerning Pleistocene fauna, my main focus of study are mammal remains from cave deposits and the insights they offer on the dating of sediments from which they originate, the reconstruction of environmental conditions, and taphonomic processes that occur in caves once occupied by humans and various animal species. In my studies of the Mesolithic and Neolithic, I have mostly focused on the transition between the two periods and the early stages of animal domestication. My additional research interests include archaeomalacology, especially the use and exchange networks of ornaments made from marine mollusc shells including fossil shells in prehistory.

Problems of dating human bones from the Iron Gates
A lack of freshwater reservoir effects in human radiocarbon dates in the Eneolithic to Iron Age in the Minusinsk Basin. Abstract A number of recent studies have highlighted the importance of freshwater reservoir effects FRE when dating human remains across large parts of Eurasia, including the Eurasian steppes. The issue is important given the large number of radiocarbon dates that have been published on human remains here, which have been used both to refine the cultural historical sequence Svyatko et al. In these studies, it was argued that there was little or no freshwater reservoir effect to take into account, despite the likely consumption of freshwater fish. Subsequent work across the steppe raised a legitimate question concerning this assumption.
