- Populations: their genes, culture, languages and geography
- Evolution and gradual change
- Imaginable trees: both haplotypic and linguistic. Real trees are also important, of course.
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: https://dspace.ut.ee/handle/10062/66492. 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.
