Hello and welcome! I am an evolutionary biologist who uses a range of tools – genomics, population genetics, mathematical modeling, even molecular biology – to answer interesting questions in evolution. This site gives an overview of my research, my CV, and other activities I’ve been involved in over the years. My publications can all be found on PubMed.

In September 2016 I defended my Ph.D. at Stanford University where, advised by Dmitri Petrov, I explored the genomic patterns and evolutionary fates of new mutations. Before Stanford I received my B.A. from U.C. Berkeley, where I also worked for 2 years as a Research Associate investigating whether cytoskeletal dynamics are conserved in basal eukaryotes. I’m currently exploring the possibilities for the next step in my research career, and it’s an exciting time!
