Australian National University

Rachel completed a DPhil at the University of Oxford on radiocarbon dating the final Neanderthals and first modern humans in Spain, and moved to the ANU Radiocarbon Facility in 2011.

In 2015 she started a DECRA aiming to investigate the diagenesis of tooth enamel and improve the radiocarbon dating of this material and from late 2018 is a senior lecturer between the Australian National University Radiocarbon Facility and School of Archaeology and Anthropology.

An essential item in Rachel’s toolkit

“Time. We need time (and a┬álarge range of methods) to carefully extract and characterize the materials radiocarbon dated to produce accurate age estimates.”
