About Me

I am a population geneticist who develops and applies computational tools to analyze genetic data. A key research interest of mine is human ancient DNA. This field is rapidly growing - by now thousands of genomes of past humans are being published every single year. I develop new ways to study these ancient genomes to study the human past, e.g. to learn about past population and social structure. Currently, I work at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology (MPI-EVA) in Leipzig, Germany, where I lead a research group in the department of Archaeogenetics. This personal website aims to give an overview of my research.
