Congratulations to Emmanuelle Casanova who passed her PhD viva on November 1st! Emmanuelle is part of the NeoMilk team and the first PhD student from the new state-of-the-art radiocarbon dating facility at the University of Bristol (BRAMS). During her PhD, Emmanuelle developed new techniques which enable high-precision compound-specific radiocarbon dating of lipids preserved in archaeological pottery vessels. Such advancements will be particularly significant in the area of archaeology where the highest precision calendrical dates are demanded. Watch this space for future results!
