I’m a graduate student in Jonathan Pritchard’s lab in the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Chicago. My research interests are in evolutionary genomics, with an emphasis on development and application of methods for large-scale data analysis.

Ongoing research projects include:

  1. Understanding the impact of genetic variation on gene expression

  2. Methodology for transcriptional profiling using high-throughput sequencing

  3. Identification of loci under positive selection in humans
