She subsequently cofounded the Laboratories of Molecular Anthropology and Microbiome Research at the University of Oklahoma in 2014. In 2016 she became a Group Leader of Microbiome Sciences at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany, and then University Professor in the Faculty of Biological Sciences at Friedrich Schiller University, Germany. Since 2019 she is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Harvard University and a Sally Starling Seaver Assistant Professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. She specializes in the analysis of degraded DNA and proteins, and her research focuses on the study of ancient biomolecules to better understand past human diet, health, and the evolution of the human microbiome. In addition to her research, she is actively engaged in public outreach and created the Adventures in Archaeological Science coloring book, now available in thirty languages, including many indigenous and underrepresented languages (http://christinawarinner.com/outreach/children/adventures-in-archaeological-science/).
