Major interests

  • Populations: their genes, culture, languages and geography
  • Evolution and gradual change
  • Imaginable trees: both haplotypic and linguistic. Real trees are also important, of course.

About me

More informationI graduated from University of Tartu (Estonia) with a PhD in 2019. My thesis was titled “Genetic history of the Uralic-speaking peoples as seen through the paternal haplogroup N and autosomal variation of northern Eurasians”. If interested, you can read it here: In my work, I concentrated on the modern genetic variation of the Eurasian north with a particular focus on the speakers of the Uralic language family, both on the autosomal level and uniparental: exploring the structure of the haplogroup N with full sequences.

As a postdoctoral researcher at University of Turku I am involved in the URKO project, providing expertise in population genetics, working with radiocarbon data from archaeology and ancient DNA from the SUGRIGE project.
