About

I’m an Archaeology PhD student at Harvard University (primary advisor Richard H. Meadow), coadvised by David Reich of the Department of Genetics, who is working to understand the human past through archaeology’s growing engagement with ancient DNA and population genetics. My interests range widely through anthropology, evolutionary biology, historical linguistics, ecology, and history.

I’m particularly interested in Siberia, Inner Asia, and the transcontinental worlds of the North Pacific and Arctic.
