Robert Power is a PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, affiliated with the University of Leiden. His research is concerned with understanding behaviours and adaptations in the Middle and Upper Palaeolithic through the use of plant microfossils. His MSc research used phytoliths to interpret Late Natufian subsistence and symbolic behaviours in Raqefet Cave, Mount Carmel. Currently, he is researching evidence for Middle and Upper Palaeolithic plant consumption and methods to analyse intragroup dietary variation using plant microfossils preserved within dental calculus.
