About me

Research Interests (Statistical + population genetics)
I am interested in leveraging powerful statistical techniques and large, modern genomic data sets to understand how evolutionary forces act on genomes on population scales, as well as gaining insights into the evolutionary history of humans and other species.

Research Interests (Networks)
Networks, incl. temporal networks, spatially-embedded networks
Dynamical systems on networks, such as epidemic models
