Ana Duggan – Post-Doc


I am trained as a biologist (B.Sc from Memorial University of Newfoundland, 2008 and M.Sc from Queen’s University, 2010) and completed my doctoral studies in evolutionary genetics with Mark Stoneking at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany.

My interests are broadly encompassed by molecular evolution and population genetics, by the historical inferences we can make from genetic analyses. In the past, I have used phylogenies and phylogeography of modern human populations to infer ancient migrations and population interactions. My current research interests involve using ancient DNA studies to reconstruct the genome of historical pathogens to examine the evolution and epidemiology of disease in ancient human populations.
