My research uses computational and statistical approaches to investigate the evolution and function of human genomes. 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.
Currently a postdoc in Josh Akey’s lab at Princeton EEB/LSI, I will be starting my own research group as an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at Johns Hopkins University in July 2018. I received my PhD in 2015 from the Department of Biology at Stanford University, advised by Dmitri Petrov and Carol Boggs.
My lab at Hopkins is recruiting new members. Find more information here.
