Unlocking teeth: Development and application of isotopic methods for human provenance studies

  • 1. TU Delft / VU Amsterdam
  • 1. Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam


This PhD research was conducted as part of the international research project NEXUS1492 which studied the impacts of the colonial encounters in the Caribbean. As part of the second project that focused on the development and application of biogeochemical methods to address human mobility, this work combined the exploration of a new isotopic technique (Nd isotope analysis) and evaluated already established methods (Sr, O, C isotope analysis).
