Dr. Patricia Santos is a postdoc at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (University of Bordeaux). Her main research interests are understanding the relationship between genetics and culture in human populations, applying methods capable of inferring the demographic history of populations using modern and ancient human genomic data. During her time at the center, she applied a novel Approximate Bayesian Computation framework to the analysis of competing models of the Bantu expansion using both linguistic and genomic data.
