Main Focus

Reconstructing pre-historic ancient human genomes to investigate:

* population genetic structure and ancestries
* the presence of gene flow between geographically distant groups to examine archaeology-driven hypotheses for cultural and technological connections
* genetic sex-biased admixture patterns and migration
*  kinship relations


Projects

* Late Stone Age Iberomaurusian hunter-gatherers from North Africa

* In-solution capture probe design to screen human remains for DNA preservation
