Professor Ronika Power

Professor Ronika Power studies ancient human remains to understand what it was like to live – and die – in the past, and to communicate the science of human health, climate change, violence and mass migrations. She hopes to build better futures by guiding decision-makers with lessons from the past.

Prof. Power studies human skeletal and mummified remains from the ancient world to communicate the science of human health, human migration, palaeodiet and palaeoclimate data. By bringing together the fields of science, technology, humanities, mathematics and medicine, Ronika tells detailed stories about the health, lifestyles and environments people experienced as long as 10,000 years ago.
