RESEARCH INTEREST:

Population genetics of ancient cattle using high-throughput next generation sequencing: The dawn of the Neolithic and its subsequent expansion across Europe is a significant milestone in the prehistory of the modern anatomical humam. Whilst the study of Neolithic human populations is crucial to gain an understanding of this period in time, an insight can also be acquired by turning our attention to the animal populations domesticated by these new farmers. By using high-throuput next generation sequencing to study the population genetics of ancient cattle, sheep and goat from different time points across Europe we can build-up a picture of the movement of these animal populations, and therefore the peoples of Europe, through the Neolithic and into the subsequent Bronze and Iron Ages.
