Dr. Emmanuele Russo

Emmanuele Russo was a Topoi doctoral fellow and a member of the Berlin Graduate School of Ancient Studies (BerGSAS) in the PhD program“Landscape Archaeology and Architecture” (LAA). He studied Physics at the University of Catania (Italy). He wrote his master thesis on statistical downscaling techniques of Global Circulation Models for the region of South Africa. He received his master degree in November 2012. In his doctoral thesis he seeks to reconstruct Mid-to-late-Holocene climate and ecological changes in the region of Black sea. His research would concentrate on the development of a complex model chain of regional climate, ecological, zoological and human-energy-balance models,that could be useful to investigate how nonsedentary communities adapted to such changes in this area.
