Research description: s an anthropological geneticist, I conduct genetics research as an anthropologist.
I study the human genome within a biosocial and biopolitical context, drawing insights from history, archaeology, philosophy of science, science and technology studies, and social theory.
My research focuses on human movement
and its consequences both for the evolution of our genome,
and as our notions of personal, group, and national identities.
My research projects incorporate the tools of ancient and modern DNA analysis, ethnography, computer modeling and statistics, and historical analysis.
