Research Interests

I am interested in population genetics models that incorporate spatial information. I want to understand the effects of continuous local gene flow and strong migration pulses on genetic variation of ancient and modern populations. In my PhD project I aim to develop a spatially explicit model which uses both ancient and modern DNA to infer the occurrence migration event and the degree of local gene flow in the past.
