We are a computational lab that studies human genetics and genomics. Research in the lab addresses problems in evolution and diversity through population genetic models, computer simulations, development of statistical methods, and analysis of data derived from DNA sequences.

 Long-term interests of the lab include topics such as: 

  • Hierarchical population structure

  • Population specific variants

  • Inference of ancestry

  • Admixture and gene flow
