McCoyI am a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University, advised by Josh Akey. My research uses computational and statistical approaches to investigate the evolution and function of the human genome. I received my PhD in 2015 from the Department of Biology at Stanford University, advised by Dmitri Petrov and Carol Boggs. My specific research interests relate to understanding the functional and fitness consequences of genetic variation–including large-scale chromosome abnormalities. I am also interested in the evolutionary processes that generate and maintain functional genetic variation in human populations.
