Research Interests: 

We apply a genome-wide approach to understanding the processes that shape the structure, content, and sequence variation of genomes among human populations and between species. We seek to understand how biological and historic population processes act to shape genomic variation and how this variation leads to the wide range of phenotypic diversity observed in the natural world.

We take a genomics approach that involves high-throughput sequencing and genotyping with population-genetic modeling. We apply genomics approaches to address questions related to the biology of genomes in a range of systems including humans, non-human primates, and domestic dogs.
