Dr. Andreas Duering is a Research Associate at the School of Archaeology, University of Oxford and Forensic Anthropologist at the IfoSA Forensic Institute, Munich/Berlin. His research focuses on (agent-based) demographic modelling software to study past populations and their cemeteries. He is interested in the demographics of populations of normal communities as well as the structure of abnormal populations, e.g. massacres, war graves etc. He also works on the identification of living and deceased human individuals at a forensic institute in Germany. Duering’s university education took place at the universities of Tübingen, Germany, as well as Durham and Oxford, UK, where he received the prestigious Clarendon Fund scholarship for his research on palaeodemographic modelling. He worked as a Digital Manager for an archaeology company in the UK before joining the IfoSA. Besides his work in forensics, he regularly works for international research projects in the fields of anthropology and archaeology. For BAP, he will utilize the Population & Cemetery Simulator (PCS) to study the demography, population structure and mortuary ritual of Baikal populations.
