research interests:

I completed my BS in Genetics at the University of Kansas (USA) and have long been interested in Biomathematics. My PhD research focuses on adaptive gene introgression after secondary contact. Using the theory of branching processes, I hope to derive the probability and time to fixation of an adaptive allele that is linked to flanking deleterious mutations. The ultimate goal is to determine the footprint of adaptive introgression in sequence polymorphism data.
