Thibaut Devièse is researcher at the University of Oxford in the Oxford Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit. He is an analytical chemist by training. After a PhD in collaboration between the University of Pisa (Italy) and the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris), he worked for 5 years in the Scientific department of the British Museum where he conducted his research on the characterisation of organic materials present is objects of the collection, focusing particularly on organic residues in ceramics and on natural organic colorants in textiles. In 2014, he joined the University of Oxford where he focuses his research on the development and application of new analytical methods for the characterisation and compound-specific radiocarbon dating of organic materials from archaeological and environmental contexts. The application of these methods to Palaeolithic bones is helping in improving our understanding of human dispersals in Eurasia during the Palaeolithic and extinction of animal species.
