The people behind the RLum.Network(cards are sorted alphabetically ... we might re-shuffle them randomly in future)
Université de Lausanne
Geomorphologist, geochronologist, Quaternary scientist, geoarchaeologist.
My research interests are the timing of processes shaping the Earth’s surface and the interactions of humans and their environment, mainly in the Palaeolithic.
Manfred is the head of the luminescence laboratory at the University of Bayreuth (Germany) and one of the founding members of our network. Between 2012 and 2020 he maintained the r-luminescence.org website.
In late 2020, Manfred decided to retire from his active role in the RLum.Network. However, he preserved his role as mentor and supporter of the idea of the RLum.Network.
Margret is a geoscientist, geochronologist and R enthusiast working as a researcher at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden Rossendorf. She is one of the founding members of the RLum.Network and author of Luminescence.
Currently, Margret’s research is based in the field of exploration technologies, where she develops non-invasive sensor solutions for efficient raw material characterisation. She focusses on spectroscopy-based technologies and their integration into smart networks.
Norbert is a physicist, geochronologist and research director at the CNRS based in the leading centre for archaeometry in France.
His work addresses questions of human evolution (e.g., Levant, South-Africa), where he made notable contributions to the field of archaeometry (e.g., application of thermoluminescence to flint).
Norbert is an expert in dosimetric modelling and luminescence-data analysis. He started working with R somewhat around 2014 and is an author of Luminescence.
Sebastian is a geographer, geochronologist, data scientist and an R enthusiast. His research focusses on the recognition of rapid environmental changes over space and time with a regional focus on Germany, France and North Africa. Beyond, he made notable contributions to the field of luminescence dating (e.g., radiofluorescence) and related data analysis.
Sebastian started his R journey during his PhD, became founding member of the RLum.Network in 2012 and is lead developer of Luminescence …
Svenja is a geographer and geochronologist and is particularly interested in luminescence processes in feldspar, single grain luminescence and dose rates. Svenja joined the R.Lum Network in 2020.
