I am an evolutionary geneticist interested in investigating population history and mechanisms of phenotypic variation, particularly in humans. My research combines data and approaches from population genetics, quantitative genetics, epigenetics, and anthropology.

I am currently a postdoctoral associate in Dr. Amy Goldberg’s lab at Duke University studying human demographic history during the Holocene and building epidemiological-evolutionary genetic models of Plasmodium vivax. Previously, I was a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Southern California in Dr. Nicholas Mancuso’s lab, where I developed fine-mapping methods for pinpointing the genetic drivers of complex traits. I received my PhD in 2019 from Stony Brook University where I worked in Dr. Brenna Henn’s lab to investigate epigenetic aging and the demographic consequences of agricultural transitions.
