B.A. Anthropology, Minor Biology, University of Montana 2017

Research Interests:

My research interests include many aspects of molecular anthropology. My background is in ancient DNA (aDNA) extraction methodology from lithic artifacts and ancient hair samples, yet I am excited about many anthropological questions that can be addressed using DNA. Ancient epigenetics and biomedical genetics are recent passions of mine, yet I always retain interest in human variation, haplogroup analysis and extraction methodology. Following fieldwork in Poland, I added interest in the peoples of the Baltic to previously held zeal for studying Native Americans and primates. I believe we live in the golden age of DNA technology and I can't wait to see what we can learn about ourselves using it.
