Our research
The Schroeder Group works at the intersection of archaeology, evolutionary biology, and genomics to tackle questions relating to human population history, subsistence, and health. With a strong foundation in archaeology, a great team, and an extensive network of national and international collaborators, we employ cutting-edge biomolecular and computational methods to explore the human story and to shed light on past evolutionary and cultural processes.

The AlpGen project aims to investigate the human population history of the Alpine region with a focus on the iconic lake settlements that existed in the region between 5,000 and 500 BCE. Using a combination of archaeological data and ancient DNA, we want to shed light on the migration patterns, interactions, and exchanges that have shaped the population and cultural history of the circum-Alpine region.
