Research Topics :
My PhD project aims at providing an understanding on the impact of contact between traditional and modern populations, and will reveal, at the genomic, epigenomic and microbiota levels, the pace of associated biological shifts. This information will, in turn, be instrumental in ongoing debates about the maladaptation of modern societies to modern lifestyles, and the growing importance of disorders such as diabetes in our societies, which more and more challenge our public health systems.

Ongoing topics :
1) Sequencing the genome, epigenome and metagenome of ancient and modern populations.
2) Identifying the pathogens responsible of major outbreaks.
3) Reconstructing population structures through time.
4) Tracking genetic, epigenetic and metagenomic changes through time.

Academic background and research experiences :
Bachelor in Molecular Biology from University of Copenhagen (Aug, 2013)
Masters in Bioinformatics from University of Copenhagen (Sep, 2015)
