Our interest is in understanding how different evolutionary forces have shaped patterns of genetic variation in humans, and conversely, in learning about recombination, demography and selection from patterns of genetic variation observed in samples of extant humans. Our research combines modeling, the development of statistical tools and data analysis. The lab is “dry”, although we often collaborate closely with experimentalists.
