We are excited to announce that Willem Baetsen will be joining the Tobacco, Health and History team in the Autumn to start his M4C funded PhD thesis focusing on maternal health and tobacco use. Willem has a strong background in osteoarchaeology after doing a MSc in Forensic Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of Bradford and an MSc in Osteoarchaeology at Leiden University. Recently, Willem has been working as a senior Osteoarchaeologist at RAAP in the Netherlands and has examined the remains of hundreds of skeletons from the medieval and post-Medieval periods in England and the Netherlands.
Welcome to the team Willem!
