I am a population geneticist interested in quantifying the evolutionary forces shaping genomic variation in natural populations using a range of computational and theoretical methods. I completed my M.S. in Statistics and Ph.D. in Genetics at Stanford University in Dr. Dmitri Petrov’s lab where I developed a new statistical method to quantify the mode and tempo of adaptation in natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster. Currently I am a postdoctoral scholar at the Gladstone Institute at UCSF in Dr. Katie Pollard’s lab studying the evolution of bacteria in the human microbiome.
