I am a graduate student in the Physics Department at Harvard University, where I study evolutionary dynamics and population genetics with Michael Desai. Broadly speaking, I'm interested in understanding evolution in the presence of many potentially selected mutations in order to utilize the rapidly increasing availability of DNA sequence data on genomic scales. 

Before coming to Harvard, I received my BA from Swarthmore College. From 2008-2010, I conducted research at the Santa Fe Institute (initially as part of their summer REU program), where I worked on methods to detect modular structure in large, complex networks with Aaron Clauset (now a professor at CU Boulder).
