Beatrice Demarchi


Beatrice is a biomolecular archaeologist (PhD, 2010, University of York) with a background in cultural heritage science (MSc, 2006, University of Turin), a penchant for palaeobiogeochemistry and a deep interest in reconstructing the human past, which she developed during her postdoctoral years at the University of York (departments of Chemistry and Archaeology, 2010-2016). Since 2017 she has been a “Rita Levi Montalcini” Lecturer in Archaeological Methodologies within the Department of Life Sciences and Systems Biology at the University of Turin.


Beatrice’s research focuses on ancient proteins - the way in which they break down over time and the information they provide, including age and biological origin of archaeological and palaeontological remains.
