Research Interest

My broad research interest is human evolution - from morphological to molecular evolution. My field of research is human molecular evolution and population genetics, and, more specifically, I am fascinated by adaptive evolution (positive and balancing selection). Right now my research is focused on the targets of balancing selection in the human lineage and how these targets may be informative about the peculiarities of human evolutionary history.
