I am a Research Assisant Professor in the Institute for Genomics and Evolutionary Medicine at Temple University , in Sergei L. Kosakovsky Pond's lab. I received my Ph.D. from the Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior graduate program at UT Austin, through Claus Wilke's lab. My research interests broadly encompass computational molecular evolution, phylogenetics, and comparative genomics. In addition to research, I have a strong interest in teaching and undergraduate education. Visit my Courses page to see classes I have designed and taught. As of Fall 2017, I have additionally joined the Steering Committee of Temple University's Professional Science Masters in Bioinformatics program.
