Postdoc Researcher

Short biography

Charlotte Störmer studied biology at the universities of Osnabrück, Giessen, and Vienna with a main interest in anthropology and sociobiology. Her PhD-project “Der Einfluss von Mortalität auf menschliche Lebensverläufe – Eine Analyse historischer Familiendaten aus Deutschland, Finnland und Kanada (17.-19. Jahrhundert) vor dem Hintergrund der Life History Theory” (funded by the German Volkswagen Foundation) at the universities of Giessen (Germany) and Sheffield (UK) combines aspects of evolutionary biology and historical demography. The study focusses on the impact of high levels of mortality on survivability and reproductive timing in historic human populations. Besides her research in evolutionary biology, Störmer is also interested in historic family reconstitutions and has profound knowledge of data processing and database management.
