Join host Bernice Bennett and special guest
Joanna joined 23andMe in 2007 as a senior member of the Research Team. She served on the faculties of the Anthropological Sciences and Genetics Departments at Stanford University. Dr. Mountain's professional and research interests include the patterns of genetic etiology across a broad range of human traits, the prehistory underlying human genetic diversity, and the nature of the relationship between genetic diversity and categories of race and ethnicity.
She spent two years as a Peace Corps volunteer teaching at a community school near the Kenyan coast and continues to be particularly interested in the genetic diversity of Africa. Dr. Mountain earned a PhD in Genetics and a BS in Mathematical Sciences, both from Stanford, and conducted postdoctoral research on human evolutionary genetics at the University of California, Berkeley.
