Research Interests: 

My research program is focused on understanding the genome level determinants of the diversification between evolutionary lineages. The approach that I use towards this end is computationally based and consists of the comparative analysis of large-scale genomic sequence, expression and functional data sets. This approach is facilitated by the accumulation of genome-scale data sets and the continuing development of the computational applications and infrastructure needed to employ such data. Ultimately, I hope to integrate our understanding of how evolutionary forces play out at distinct levels of biological organization.

Areas of Specialization: 
Comparative & Functional Genomics, Human Clinical & Population Genetics, Computational Health
