Biography

Linus studied archaeology, osteology and ancient DNA at Gotland University, Stockholm University and Uppsala University (Sweden) to obtain an MA in Osteology 2004-2008. He moved to Durham (UK) to start a Leverhulme funded PhD to study the process of pig domestication throguh ancient DNA analysis in 2008. Linus then spent a year as a PDRA at the Natural History Museum in London (2012-2013) before starting a PDRF at the University of Aberdeen in 2013 and a PDRF at the Archaeological Research Laboratory at Stockholm University in 2015. He worked as a Lecturer in Human evolutionary Genetics at Liverpool John Moores University between from February 2016 - December 2019. From January 2020 he works as a Lecturer in Ancient Biomolecules in the Archaeology Department at Aberdeen.
