Institutional Group page: Population Genetics

I am group leader for population genetics at the Department for Archaeogenetics. My group at the MPI investigates human history by means of Genetics, and develops computational methods to model and analyse ancient and modern genomic data.

Curriculum Vitae

I have studied Physics at the University of Cologne, Germany, and finished my PhD in January 2012. In my thesis I studied asexual adaptation and the effect of genetic linkage on natural selection. From 2012 until 2015 I was a Postdoctoral Fellow with Richard Durbin at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Hinton, Cambridge, UK. I have mainly worked on methods to estimate past demography from genome sequences, and on ancient DNA from archaeological sites in East England, dating to the Iron Age and early Anglo-Saxon era. Since September 2015 I am research group leader at the Max-Planck-Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany.

In 2019 I was awarded an ERC Starting grant to develop new population genetic methods based on rare genetic variation, and to study the European Iron Age (Project MICROSCOPE)

Since 2020 I have transferred my group, together with the Department of Archaeogenetics, to the MPI for Evolutionary Anthropology (MPI-EVA) in Leipzig. Since October 2021 I am a W2 Max Planck Research Group Leader at the MPI-EVA.
