Research Interests

I finished my studies in molecular biology and since I always was passionate about archaeology and anthropology, I wanted to join these disciplines and specialize in the field of paleogenetics. In my opinion, it is of the outermost importance to observe genetic evidence in the context, together with archaeological and paleontological evidence, as the collaboration between various educational backgrounds is a key in obtaining more comprehensive explanation about human history.At the moment I use ancient DNA to do kinship analyses of Early Bronze Age necropolis, which further provide an insight into social organization and structure of populations. I would also like to be engaged more in the field of paleopathology, as understanding co-evolution between a pathogen and a host, as well as adaptation processes are key factors to obtain more information about diseases.
