About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher with Jeffrey Jensen at Arizona State University and I worked with Michael Lynch during my PhD at Indiana University. My research interest broadly spans population genetics and molecular evolution. I am interested in how non-adaptive evolutionary processes like changes in population size, recombination rate, presence of negative selection and factors such as genome architecture shape patterns of variation.  I am currently working on making statistical methods to measure the extent of such evolutionary forces from population-genomic data with specific interests in inference of demography and the distribution of fitness effects of deleterious mutations.
