Hunter Provyn is a software engineer with a passion for cycling and history. He has been co-administrator of FamilyTreeDNA J-M241 Y-Haplogroup project for two years. His motivation in launching PhyloGeographer is to help inform migration theories of clades in the absence of (or conjuction with) ancient DNA.
He believes amateur genetic genealogists are in a position to advance phylogeographical research of clades formed in the last few thousand years.
It is his hope that other haplogroup project administrators and members find the visualization system useful and contribute toward its enhancement by publishing their data to make their projects accessible to the community.
