As a doctoral student in archaeology at Besançon (Chrono-environnement Laboratory), I explore the paleoenvironments of Greenland and Canada, from Newfoundland to St-Pierre-et-Miquelon. In collaboration with specialists in France and Canada, I use multi-proxy analyses such as paleobotany (palynology, microcharcoal) and paleoparasitology to reconstruct past vegetation over the last millennia of the Holocene. By examining sequences from lakes and peat bogs in the vicinity of Inuit and Norse archaeological sites, I identify and study “anthropization markers” that bear witness to past lifestyles that influenced vegetation. By crossing various disciplines, my archaeo-paleoecological research in Arctic and sub-Arctic hotspots contributes to a better understanding of recent climate change and its repercussions on adaptation and resilience capacities in complex human-nature interactions.
