I am a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Daniel Weissman at Emory University. Previously, I obtained my PhD from Stanford University, under Noah Rosenberg. I study evolutionary theory and population genetics. My primary research interests are:

  • Effects of evolutionary processes on the shapes of gene genealogies [2, 1]
  • Evolution of complex interactions between individuals and other individuals or between individuals and the environment [6]
  • Properties of mathematical quantities used in the study of evolving populations [4]
  • General rules that describe evolutionary dynamics
Other topics I have worked on include:
  • Foraging theory [3]
  • Epidemiology and human behavior [5]
I obtained my BS in Biology and in Mathematics from the University of California, San Diego, where I worked with Lin Chao, Carolyn Kurle, and Jonathan Shurin.
