Population Genetics


Research interests

As an anthropological geneticist, I am interested in how the human genetic diversity is impacted by cultural behaviours, migrations and demographic events. During my PhD, I was working on several neutral genetic markers: genome-wide autosomal SNPs, Y chromosomal STRs, mitochondrial HVS1 sequences and haplogroups, in combination with ethnological data, sampled from present-day Inner Asian human populations. Now, at CMPG, my post-doctoral project aims at studying demography, admixture and migration within great apes species and human Neolithic groups, using a coalescent model-based approach.
