I study the evolution of all sorts of biological organisms, from viruses to plants to animals. To gain insights into their evolutionary history, I apply statistical methods to sequence data combined with trait data. I have dabbled in cancer genomics, algal ecology, and molecular diagnostics of infectious diseases. While not doing research, I run a next-generation sequencing-based molecular diagnostics startup (Fusion Genomics. Corp.) that I co-founded during PhD.
