I (see Figure 1 above) am a population geneticist in the lab of Mattias Jakobsson at Uppsala University, Sweden. We are using ancient DNA to obtain information from different time points in human prehistory. Such data can be seen as a time capsule which allows to study the individuals involved in particular migrations. I am analyzing large sets of genomic data in a number of projects mostly concerned with the prehistory of Europe. Furthermore, I am involved in the development of computational methods to study demographic history and local adaptation.
In addition to humans, I have been working with a number of other systems. I have spent large parts of my PhD (in the lab of Karl Schmid at the University of Hohenheim) doing population genomic in plants and in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana in particular where I was involved in the 1001 genomes project.
