Samantha L. Cox
Trained in physical anthropology, Sam is working to understand the evolution of anthropometric traits in humans, using morphological data, genome-wide association studies and ancient DNA.
Arslan is investigating the phenotypic effects of mitochondrial incompatibility and the confounding effects of population structure in very large association studies. Read more on his website.
Co-advised by Sarah Tishkoff, Dan is using both ancient and modern DNA to understand the processes that drove the evolution of complex traits, including skin pigmentation and stature, throughout human history.
