Pablo Mateos joins the Editorial Board of the journal Human Biology
Human Biology is the official publication of the American Association of Anthropological Genetics (AAAG). It publishes multidisciplinary articles on human biology and evolution with an anthropological focus. It has proved as a very successful forum for interdisciplinary work on the fields of human population genetics, evolutionary and genetic demography, quantitative genetics, evolutionary biology, ancient DNA studies, biological anthropological and cultural diversity inferred from linguistic variability, ethnological diversity, archaeological evidence, etc.).
Pablo’s work on the geography of names and ethnicity has attracted the attention of population geneticists in various countries and following invitations to present at several interdisciplinary conferences in this area he has now been invited to join the editorial board of Human Biology (2010-2014). His work on the geography and ethnicity of people’s names has focussed on challenging established myths about human group identity and the consequences of contemporary migration flows for population structure over space, in particular developing applications in ethnic inequalities in health and residential segregation in several countries.
