I received a MSc from Washington State University in Biology. My master’s thesis focused on genome evolution in invasive asexual species. My current focus is on the use of population genetics in cancer genomic data/models and improving metrics commonly used with cancer data (tumor mutation burden, microsatellite instability, etc.). I am broadly interested in the evolutionary consequences of asexual vs sexual reproduction, models of neutral/non-neutral evolution, invasive species, polyploidy, and what fuels rapid adaptation.
Unordered list of favorite population geneticists: Mueller, Haldane, Wright, Tajima, Watterson, Kimura.
