I am a computational and evolutionary biologist. Basically, I use computers to analyze large datasets to understand biological processes. Primarily I focus on investigating why mutation rates differ between males and females, what we can learn about the history of modern species by characterizing genetic variation across their genomes, and how sex chromosomes change through time.
