I have always been interested in prehistoric times, when no written records exist to help us understand how people lived, thought and behaved. My goal in establishing the lab is to use ancient DNA data to shed light on prehistoric and proto-historic populations, while striving to understand the effect that past events still have on our own genomes today.
Visiting PhD student
I am a medical doctor from Italy joining the lab for a short-term visit on an EMBO fellowship. I am interested in the evolution of autoimmune diseases.
