I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Kern-Ralph Co-Lab in the Institute of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Oregon. My current research involves development and implementation of deep learning methods for population genetic analysis. More generally, I am interested in methods development and data analysis for population and statistical genetics, particular in human genetics.
