Toomas Kivisild, (born on 11 August 1969 in Tapa, Estonia) is an Estonian geneticist. He graduated with Ph.D. from University of Tartu in 2000 and is currently a lecturer at Cambridge University, Division of Biological Anthropology. His research focuses mainly on human evolution and evolutionary population genetics, with a particular emphasis on questions relating global genetic population structure with evolutionary processes such as selection, drift, migrations and admixture. -- Stephen Oppenheimer, drawing upon the work of Kivisild (e.g. Kivisild 2000b) and other geneticists, writes in his work The Real Eve that South Asia may be the birthplace of the Eurasian mtDNA haplogroups which he calls the Eurasian Eves.
