About me


I am a researcher and group leader at the Globe Institute Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. I received my PhD from the University of Oxford in 2009, and between 2009-2012 I was a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for GeoGenetics in Copenhagen, Denmark. My research focuses primarily on the application of isotope and ancient DNA analyses in archaeology and I have a special interest in Caribbean archaeology. I have worked on several TV documentaries, and my research has been featured in NatureScience, the New Scientist, National Geographic, the LA Times, and on the BBC, among others.
