Department of Anthropology


My interests are broadly encompassed by molecular anthropology, evolution and population genetics, by the historical inferences we can make from genetic analyses. In the past, I have used phylogenies and phylogeography of modern human populations in Oceania to infer ancient migrations and population interactions. My current research interests involve using ancient DNA studies to reconstruct the genome of historical pathogens to examine the evolution and epidemiology of disease in ancient human populations as well as the population history of Native American groups from Canada's East Coast. I am more than happy to chat with anyone interested in the application of genetics to anthropology as well as anyone considering applying to grad school or post-grad positions.
