Ophélie Lebrasseur is a postdoctoral research assistant in the School of Archaeology, University of Oxford. She is a zooarchaeologist and geneticist whose main research interest lies in the global dispersals of animals through time and their consequences on human-animal relationships and animal genetic diversity.  She is particularly interested in the last 500 years with the advent of transoceanic travel, as well as South American native and introduced fauna.  In addition to the Chicken Project and the Going Places project, she currently is working on the ERC’s UNDEAD project (Unifying Domestication and Evolution through Ancient DNA).  She is based at the Palaeogenomics & Bioarchaeological Research Network led by Prof. Greger Larson at the University of Oxford, UK.
