I am a postdoctoral fellow in Josh Akey’s lab in the Department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington. I completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Biology at Stanford University, co-advised by Dmitri Petrov and Carol Boggs.  My work extends to diverse study systems, using high-throughput genomic approaches to investigate basic and applied questions in evolution and biology. My current postdoctoral research projects focus on understanding the functional and fitness consequences of archaic hominin gene flow into modern human populations.
