Benoit Longet has a PhD in prehistoric archaeology from the University of Aix-Marseille (Lampea, Aix-en-Provence). He is a specialist of the Palaeolithic and Middle Stone Age lithic industries.  His thesis focused on North African Middle Stone Age industries, in particular of the Early NAMSA and the Aterian.  He is also particularly interested in intra-site spatial analyses, which allow the reconstruction of the organisation of human’s settlements.  
After a year of teaching at the University of Aix-Marseille from 2022 to 2023 (ATER), he continues his research in 2024 in South Africa at the CENIEH as part of the team of Michael Toffolo (project PEOPLE). His research focuses on the phenomenon of the regionalisation of technical traditions during the Middle Stone Age at the beginning of the Upper Pleistocene.
