Guido Barbujani has worked at the State University of New York, Stony Brook, at the Universities of Padua and Bologna, and now teaches Genetics and Population genetics at the University of Ferrara, Italy. He is Coordinator of the Ph.D. Programme in Evolutionary Biology and Ecology, Universities of Ferrara, Florence and Parma. A population geneticist by training, he has done research (in collaboration, among others, with Robert R. Sokal and Luca Cavalli-Sforza) on different aspects of human diversity and evolution. These include the relationships between genetic and linguistic variation, inference of demographic processes from ancient and modern DNA data, and the social impact of biological research. He is author (as of January 2020) of 153 peer-reviewed papers, 26 book chapters and 5 scientific books (plus a few novels).
