Participation: 2019

My interest in the settlement history of Papua New Guinea arose during my Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Louvain, Belgium. This first interest, and more broadly the wish to study human population genetics, led me to start a Master’s Degree in Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Aix-Marseille, France. Currently, I am continuing my research interest as a PhD student in Gene Technology at the University of Tartu, Estonia. The main aim of my project is to study human genetic adaptation to Papua New Guinean environments.
