Biography

I am an evolutionary biologist, broadly interested in questions of genome evolution, mutation rate variation, and the consequences on species biology. I analyze large-scale datasets to study questions relating to sex-specific mutational processes, including, how sex chromosomes arise and evolve, and how and why mutation rates differ between the sexes. I work with collaborators to develop models and analyze experimental data to understand the effects of natural selection, background selection, and convergent evolution. Further, I am conducting the analysis of RNAseq data to better understand allele-specific expression and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I actively organize and participate in activities to increase diversity in science, and to improve science communication.
