GitHub Profile


I am an NSF postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Computational Molecular Biology (CCMB) at Brown in Emilia Huerta-Sanchez’s lab. My research is primarily concerned with developing methods and theory to investigate gene tree—species tree discordance, as well as applications of topological data analysis to genomics and introgression detection. I am also interested in how sex is conceptualized and how sex-related variables are analyzed, especially within the context of evolutionary biology.

Previously, I was advised by John Wakeley and Andrew Blumberg in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard and a member of the GenderSci Lab.
