Research Interests

My research focuses on how past environmental changes and human impacts have determined the evolution and distribution of organisms. I have a specific interest in the marine environment. At present, our group is working on several organisms, for example, Atlantic walrus, Atlantic cod, herring or New Zealand snapper and ask how genetic variation, population structure and population size have changed over time in the context of the onset of human exploitation and the development of long-distance trade networks. We closely work together with archaeologists and zooarchaeologists using ancient DNA to retrieve whole genome data from archaeological material from several hundreds to thousands of years old.
