My general interest is understanding how evolutionary forces shape genomes. I am particularly fascinated by intragenomic conflict and adaptive evolution acting on genomic architecture. In order to better understand these complex phenomena, I am keen on developing and assessing computational methods for recognizing the footprints that evolutionary processes left on genomes.
And – oh yeah! – sometimes I like to hang out with my billions of bacteria friends in the Gordo lab.
I completed my M.Sc. in molecular evolution at McMaster University (2015) and my B.Sc. at the University of Toronto (2010), both in Ontario, Canada.
