Kate Fish is interested in how taphonomic processes and time averaging impact the fossil fauna record that are used to reconstruct hominin habitats. She hopes to use agent-based modelling to look at how fossilization potential and different scales of time averaging within a given environment may bias the fossil record. The goal of this research is more detailed and accurate habitat reconstructions for Plio-Pleistocene hominins that take into account both fossilization biases and time averaging.
