About Us

An interdisciplinary research group focusing on topics related to human evolution, biohistory, and evolutionary medicine using novel methodologies.


In our lab, we combine diverse approaches to reveal the compromises between the desired human anatomical design and that developed during evolution. These compromises brings forth trade-offs between different anatomical structures during an evolutionary process of adaptation and has an impact on modern human health. Part of the research includes reconstructing ancient populations' daily life, based on their skeletal remains. These anthropological remains are obtained from various archeological excavation sites in Israel, spreading over a wide time range.
