Andrew G. Farrer is a PhD Candidate at the Australian Centre for Ancient DNA (ACAD). His research looks at how the human oral microbiota (bacterial community) is impacted by cultural and environmental shifts through time, and what this means for health and disease, past and present. He specialises in ancient DNA techniques, recovering the oral bacteria of British individuals who lived during the last 2,000 years.
