I am currently a post-doc in the Department of Biological Science at the University of Notre Dame. I recently received my Ph.D. from New York University, working in the Molecular Anthropology Laboratory. My research focuses on how genetic material is transferred between populations and species, and the behavioral, ecological, and anthropogenic factors that affect such gene flow. I use genomics and bioinformatic techniques to study population genetics, mostly in mosquitoes and primates.
I am affiliated with:
And maintain affiliations with:
My current major projects involve the application of genomic techniques to mosquitoes that transmit malaria in the genus Anopheles, with projects in Uganda and Cameroon. I am still pursuing questions in evolutionary primatology, especially those involving hybridization.
