New face: Samuel James Walker
New Postdoctoral Fellow at Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES). From the UK.
I am the new postdoctoral researcher at CEES working on the Norwegian Research Council funded project EvoCave. The EvoCave project is an interdisciplinary project excavating a karst cave in northern Norway. The cave deposits have yielded an interesting faunal assemblage which has the potential to give us a rare insight into past faunal biodiversity throughout the last interglacial-glacial cycle. I am originally from the UK and my background is in archaeology and zooarchaeology both studied at Bournemouth University. I completed my PhD in 2021 at the University Museum of Bergen with the title ‘Archaeological bird remains from Norway as a means to identify long-term patterns in a Northern European avifauna’.
