Child Health & Wellness Researcher
PhD (Doctor of Philosophy)
- Complex Traits
My research program focuses on using evolutionary models to understand genomic data, and uses genomic data to understand the process of evolution. I am broadly interested in understanding how and why different kinds of adaptations evolve in response to similar evolutionary challenges. This fundamental research question has important implications to any process involving evolutionary change and understanding the genomic basis of this change. I often collaborate with researchers working on applied problems in medicine and agriculture.
