Dr Thibaut Deviese

Research Profile

I joined the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art in April 2014. My work is mainly focused on the development of new methods for the extraction, characterisation and/or purification of organic materials from different archaeological matrix using multi analytical approaches (e.g. FTIR, SEM, XRF, XRD, SFE, GC/MS, HPLC/DAD). One of my research priorities is improving the sample preparation for compound specific radiocarbon analyses.

Current Projects

  • "From natural resources to packaging, an interdisciplinary study of skincare products over time" funded by the AHRC. This project is in collaboration with Dr Szu Shen Wong from Keele University and Dr Jayne Draycott from Glasgow University (Principtal Investigator, 2016-2018). [http://gtr.rcuk.ac.uk/]
  • PalaeoChron Project "Precision dating of the Palaeolithic, chronological mapping of the Middle and Upper Palaeolithic of Eurasia" funded by an European Research Council Advanced Grant (Postdoctoral researcher, 2013-2018). [http://www.palaeochron.org/]
