I am an assistant professor at the Centre for GeoGenetics in the Natural History Museum of the University of Copenhagen. I was previously a postdoctoral research associate in the Pickrell Lab, at the New York Genome Center. Before that, I was a PhD student in Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley, with a designated emphasis in Computational and Genomic Biology. I was jointly advised by Montgomery Slatkin and Rasmus Nielsen.

I graduated with a BA in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology with a minor in Statistics from Harvard University. Before moving to Berkeley, I spent a year at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, working on the sequencing and analysis of the high-coverage Denisova and Neanderthal genomes.

My current research interests involve developing tests to detect patterns of ancient selection and creating methods to integrate functional and population genomic data, as well as inferring demographic parameters using present-day and archaic human genomes. For more details and a list of published papers, please see my Research and Publications sections.
