Welcome to my research page. I am currently a PhD student in evolutionary biology advised by Matthew Stephens and John Novembre. Evolutionary biology is concerned with studying how life came to be and it has personally affected how I look at the world. As you can imagine, it is a science encompassing many subfields and I specifically focus on studying population genetics. Population genetic models describe changes in genetic variation across time under evolutionary forces such as drift, selection, migration, and mutation. I think it’s a very exciting time to work in population genetics given the massive amounts of sequence data available. This is especially true for human sequence data, making humans a model system for studying population genetics.
