Presentation

I am an archaeozoologist, specialist of the South West Asian mammalian and bird remains. During the past 29 years I worked in Iran, Irak, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Georgia, United Arab Emirates, Oman and Pakistan. Through a diachronic approach to the subsistence economies, with a particular focus on the Neolithic process, I am interested in a better characterization of the sedentary and non-sedentary societies in the past that interacted within these vast territories of South West Asia, in the evolution of biodiversity In parallel to the classical archaeozoological analyses, I lead several programs on the study of mobile pastoralism using biogeochemistry and isotopic analyses as well as morphometric analyses combined with genetics. In Iran, together with [Dr. Haeedeh Laleh](https://rtis2.ut.ac.ir/cv/hlaleh/?lang=en-gb), we created the Bioarchaeology Laboratory of the University of Tehran. where the Archaeozoology section is particularly dynamic. I am also in charge of the scientific supervision of the department of osteology at the [National Museum of Iran](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Museum_of_Iran). From the last 20 years I have trained several students from Iran, France and Germany on the bioarchaoelogy of the Iranian Plateau and Central Asia. I am currently the co-director of Archaeozoology and Archaeobotany Research Group of the CNRS ([UMR 7209](https://archeozoo-archeobota.mnhn.fr/)) at the [Natural History Museum of Paris ](https://www.mnhn.fr/)and a member of the International Committee of ICAZ.
