Research Description

I am interested in the use of ancient DNA to study the effect of climate change and past peoples on biodiversity throughout time. For my PhD research I will analyze ancient DNA from sediments in order to reconstruct palaeoenvironments of terrestrial Arctic biomes and test the magnitude of ecological changes across multiple glacial-interglacial transitions over the past 450,000 years.
