Christina Warinner

Christina Warinner is a biological anthropologist and archaeologist whose research focuses on the evolutionary and ecological relationships between humans, their diets, and their resident microbes (microbiomes) in both modern and ancient populations. Combining archaeological fieldwork with genomic and proteomic research, she investigates dental calculus, a mineralized form of dental plaque that preserves for tens of thousands of years and serves as a unique reservoir of bacterial, dietary, and host health information.
