Evolutionary biology, population genomics, Earth processes, causality and statistical modeling, moreC.V.

I invite students from all different intellectual and cultural backgrounds to join our research group, which I run jointly with Dr. Kenro Kusumi. We are committed in inclusivity and anti-racist practices in our group. Email me if you are interested in an undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral position.
