In our group, we investigate genetic diversity in order to contribute to understanding of our past. The main research line is to uncover, describe and understand demographic events in history and prehistory. We particularly focus on the recent past and combine our work with historical and archaeological hypotheses and interpretation. We are also concerned with sensitive bias-free population genetic data analysis, theory of interdisciplinary interpretation and societal impact of our results.
