My general interests include Bayesian and computational statistics, particularly when applied to problems in population genetics. Specific interests include:
* estimating haplotypes from population genotype data (for which I distribute a software package PHASE).
* developing statistical models for patterns of linkage disequilibrium across multiple loci, and using these patterns to identify recombination hotspots.
* spatial modelling of allele frequency variation.
