My research focuses on developing statistical methods for inference in population and comparative genomics. I am particularly interested in approaches for testing evolutionary hypothesis regarding the importance of natural selection and demographic history in patterning genetic variation. Much of my group`s research deals with development of population genetic theory as well as application of our tools to make inference from genome-wide data sets. We have recently become very interested in methods for association mapping in natural and domesticated populations. We work on a variety of organisms including humans, macaques, Canines, rodents, rice, Arabidopsis, and fruit files.
