Our laboratory research focuses on the exploitation of biolithic signatures from flint-based stone tools in prehistoric archaeology as proxies for determining flint tool’s provenience using single-cell approach and omics toolboxes. We are interested in the development and application of artificial intelligence (AI)-based algorithms capable of mining the "known unknowns" patterns hidden in large archaeological datasets. We also explore new and alternative biologically-based fabrication methods that combine molecular design with plant sciences towards material farming.


We are just starting and searching for motivated Students (rotation, Master or Ph.D.) and Postdocs to join our team. If you’re coming from a biological, chemical, or archaeological background, please check the "Join the team" page and/or contact me at: filipe.natalio@weizmann.ac.il
