Rozenn has studied at several universities for her training: Rennes 2 (1996-1998), Paris 1 -Panthéon-Sorbonne- (1999-2001) and Paul Sabatier in Toulouse (2005-2006 and 2015-2018) of whose she is a doctor. Her interests are diverse and her curiosity for the human history is infinite (history, archaeology and anthropobiology). At the same time, she was recruited at Afan (Association française d’archéologie nationale) in 1999 and then, integrated into the creation of Inrap (Institut National de Recherche en Archéologie Préventive) in 2001. She is a member of the Fossil group of the CAGT.

As a field archaeologist on preventive sites, she enjoyed discoveries by serendipity permitted by the discipline. She worked on various periods (Lower Palaeolithic and Solutrean habitats, early medieval necropolises or modern cemeteries, etc.) and vast French territories (Grand Ouest, Nord Pas de Calais, Doubs, Périgord). By using a preventive approach, she was able to excavate several funerary complexes such as the parish cemetery of Bréal-sous-Vitré (35), the Merovingian and Carolingian cemeteries of Romilly-sur-Andelle (27) and Olonne-sur-Mer (85), those of the Jacobins convent in Rennes (35) or the Bronze Age necropolis of Plougonvelin (29). In programmed excavations, she also worked on the prehistoric sites of Menez Dregan (29) and the Erve Valley (53).

Her researches are (i) the comparison of biological, medical and archaeological data in anthropology, (ii) the creation of management tools and database management systems in archaeo-anthropology (SGBD) and (iii) the investigation of the biological repercussions of social inequalities in archaeological series, particularly with the use of isotopes (AIDE project supported by a Global Fellowship Marie Sklodowska-Curie, collaboration between Inrap, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver –Canada- and GET Toulouse). (iv) She is also the head of a Research Collective Action (ACR) within Inrap on the Archaeology of Disability and editor of the « archéologie du handicap » hypothesis booklet.
