Schmid joined the Department of Archaeogenetics as a PhD student in October 2019, where he is currently conducting research on human mobility and studying the genetic, linguistic, and cultural distances between populations.

Schmid wrote his award-winning thesis while studying at Kiel University.

To learn more about his research, which was described as a “pioneering achievement for the German-speaking world” by Dr. Georg Roth, read Schmid’s interview (DE) with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ur- und Frühgeschichte.
