I am very interested in the mechanisms that drive evolution and how these evolutionary forces shape the genomes of individuals and populations. This is a fairly new subject to me so I am mainly interested in learning all I can during my internship at the IGC, and in identifying the most interesting questions one can ask in the exciting field of Evolutionary Dynamics. In a few months I will be starting my final year of my master’s in Biological Engineering and I can only hope everything works out after that!
