Dr. Kamilla Pawłowska is an assistant professor at the University of Adam Mickiewicz, Poland, where she works as a vertebrate paleontologist and zooarcheologist. Her research focuses on understanding the pattern and the process of the extension of Pleistocene mammals in Europe, especially of mammoths and woolly rhinoceros, as well as on climate reconstruction using stable isotope analysis. Her participation in the Çatalhöyük Research Project allows her to study animal bones in their environmental, economic, and social context, and to undertake research into human–animal relations from the Neolithic onwards. An additional area of research is in understanding the formation of bone deposits. Her teaching work includes evolutionary and adaptive aspects of both vertebrates and invertebrates. Research interests include pleistocene fauna; animal domestication; subsistence strategies; animal exploitation; the social and economic significance of animals; taphonomy; and paleopathology.
