Olaf is part of the Archaeological Science group which is under the supervision of Mike Richards.
General research interests:
- Biochemical turnover of bone tissue and collagen
- Reconstruction of palaeodiet and migration using biochemical techniques
- Influences of the geological subsoil on the isotopic pattern of bone collagen
