Associate Professor

Peter Heintzman

Associate Professor
The Arctic University Museum of Norway

Job description:

Academic research, supervision, and curation




Research interests

Dr. Heintzman uses degraded DNA to assess evolutionary and ecological questions surrounding a wide variety of different organisms (including insects, mammals, and plants). He is an expert in the application and development of ancient DNA methodologies, particularly within the emerging subfield of sedimentary ancient DNA. Using these expertise, he determined the most precisely-constrained timing of a prehistoric extinction event, for which he won the PNAS Cozzarelli Prize.
