I am currently a postdoc supervised by Yun Song, who was also my Ph.D. advisor. I obtained my Ph.D. in Statistics at UC Berkeley in December 2015.

My research centers on the coalescent, a fundamental stochastic process for population genetics, and involves both a probabilistic side, discovering new insights about the coalescent, and a statistical side, using the coalescent to infer demographic history, recombination rates, and genealogies.

Other interests include: genome-wide association studies (GWAS), graphical models, tensor analysis, time series, high dimensional regression, Bayesian methods (MCMC, importance sampling, ABC).
