I’m a postdoc in Simon Myers’ group at the Department of Statistics, University of Oxford, working on Statistical and Population Genetics.

Our genomes contain rich information about our shared genetic past, such as past migrations, introgression with Neanderthals and other extinct hominids, and adaptation to environmental or lifestyle changes throughout human history.

I develop statistical methods for reconstructing this history, scalable to the largest genomic datasets, which now comprise more than 100,000 individuals and record genetic diversity on an unprecedented scale.

Broadly, I am interested in

  • developing powerful statistical techniques to study the evolutionary history of humans and other species
  • understanding how/which evolutionary forces have shaped genetic variation.
