Martin Richards

Martin Richards studies variation in gene frequencies to reconstruct the routes taken by our distant palaeolithic ancestors as they dispersed out of Africa to settle in Asia and Europe between 100,000 and 40,000 years ago. With Hans-J├╝rgen Bandelt and Vincent Macaulay, he co-edited 'Mitochondrial DNA and the Evolution of Homo Sapiens' (Springer-Verlag, 2006).
