Swig Boardroom

Logan Kistler is a Curator of Archaeobotany and Archaeogenomics in the Department of Anthropology at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History. Dr. Kistler studies plant domestication and evolutionary ecology in the human context using ancient DNA and genomics and is particularly interested in the adaptability of maize and the domestication and movement of gourds and squashes. He also collaborate on issues of biodiversity and endemic ecosystem conservation in eastern Cuba, and on genomic research into Madagascar’s giant, extinct, subfossil lemurs.
