Current Research

My general research interests revolve around the use of ancient DNA technology in the study of recent human past. Ancient DNA can be utilized to study migration, disease and adaptation, but it can also serve a tool facilitating our understating of social structure and organization in past societies.

My current project uses sex identification and kinship analysis as means to highlight mutual relations of individuals interred at various burial grounds. The project focuses mainly on individuals from multiple burials and the differential treatment male/female sub-adults and children in Bronze, Iron and Middle Ages.
