Rossella has undertaken a multi-disciplinary approach to archaeological and anthropological studies of past human populations from the Middle Neolithic and Punic time periods in Sardinia, Italy. Rossella's analysis has shown how demography and health have been affected over time by the environment and socio-political structure of this Mediterranean island.
