I am interested in applying mathematical models to the study of genome evolution. Projects I've undertaken during my time in Cambridge have included visualizing the tree of life, simulating the evolution of genes and genomes, and using comparative genomics to pinpoint ecological differences between primates. Growing up, I developed a keen sense of awe for the workings of nature, whose products can be so beautifully simple in form yet so detailed in function. Now at the graduate level, in the face of immense scientific complexity, that feeling hasn't diminished; I hope it never will.
