I am interested in understanding evolutionary dynamics in large populations. I use a combination of theory and data analysis to study how the dynamics of the evolutionary process influence what is possible and what is typical in evolution. Recently, I have been working on understanding the evolutionary processes shaping the adaptive immune system.
I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the department of Applied Physics at Stanford University as part of the inagural cohort of Stanford Science Fellows. Prior to this, I spent a year as a Lewis-Sigler Theory Fellow at Princeton University. I received my PhD in Systems Biology at Harvard University advised by Michael Desai, and a BA and MSci in Experimental and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge.
