Title: Molecular evidence for human population change associated with climate events in the Maya lowlands

Biography

Benjamin’s research to verify this theory is based on organic geochemistry by linking past population dynamics with hydrological dynamics in the Maya Lowlands. Benjamin is developing techniques to measure population and hydrological changes by analyzing various organic molecules preserved in lake sediments.
