My research interests focus on the study of past human and animal populations through the analysis of ancient DNA.

 

I completed my PhD in Paleogenetics at the University of Florence (Italy) in 2007 with a thesis on the genetical history of past Italian populations. In 2010, I integrated the Laboratory of Paleogenome and Epigenome at the Institute Jacques Monod in Paris (France) as a post-doctoral researcher until 2016. During this period, I participated in several research projects to address questions about the evolutionary history of wild and domestic animal species including phylogeographical studies, population dynamics and domestication events. In particular, I was involved in the study of bison populations and their origin in Europe, the phylogeography of Bos primigenius during the Holocene and horse domestication events. I also collaborated in the development of a high-throughput metabarcoding approach to genotype degraded samples.

 

I joined the Archaeogenetics group to collaborate on the ARCHAIC project that aims to perform a phylochronological genetic study to capture the ancestral variation and the origins and modes of improvement of Iberian and North African cattle. I will be involved in ancient DNA laboratory work and in bioinformatics analyses on the genetic data of the archaeological remains obtained by high throughput sequencing.
