We aim to understand the function and evolution of the complex molecular networks that underlie life. To do so, we integrate computational systems biology, population genetics, and molecular evolution. We build and analyze mathematical simulations of protein networks to probe their function, and we analyze genomic data to undercover signatures of population history and natural selection, with an emphasis on humans. Our group is interdisciplinary and collaborative, with an atmosphere that promotes both hard work and creativity.
