I received my Ph.D. in Integrative Biology, with a designated emphasis in Computational & Genomic Biology, from the University of California, Berkeley under the direction of John Huelsenbeck. I am currently an NSF postdoctoral fellow at North Carolina State University, co-supervised by Jeffrey Thorne (N.C. State University) and Evan Eichler (University of Washington). My research lies at the interface between genomics, population genetics, and phylogenetics. I develop, evaluate, and implement statistical methods to ask questions about evolutionary biology. I am particularly interested in context-dependent evolution, or evolution in the presence of epistatic interactions. During my doctoral work I focused on the evolution of proteins and RNAs, whose structures impart constraint onto their evolutionary trajectories. My current work examines the role of context-dependence in the evolution of genomic insertions and deletions.
