As an evolutionary geneticist, I develop computational methods and use genomic data to understand how evolution works.
I'm especially interested in genetic exchange between previously separated populations-- both how this gene flow occurs and its ecologically and medically relevant consequences . My work aims to connect our understanding of genetic exchange on both genomic and population-level scales, ranging from understanding the recombination landscape to understanding the social and ecological processes that determine how populations interact.
Currently, I'm a postdoctoral fellow with Amy Goldberg at Duke University, where I'm working to understand how population history and evolutionary processes shape genetic variation in recently admixed human populations. Previously, I was a graduate student in the Noor Lab, where I used Drosophila species to understand how variation in chromosome structure shapes recombination and gene flow.
