My name is Martyna Molak and I study ancient DNA*.

Currently I am exploring genetic landscape of Polish population through time using ancient DNA at the Museum and Institute of Zoology of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.

I have also worked with ancient DNA popluation genetics of pre-Columbian Indians and explored theoretical framework for ancient DNA studies - including DNA damage models, calibrating molecular clocks and reconstructing demographic histories of populations using ancient DNA, and investigated time-dependent biases in evolutionary rate estimation.

Please also visit my Google Scholar profile for the most up to date list of my publications.
