I'm an Assistant Member at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center affiliated with the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division and with the Computational Biology Program. I study the dynamics of virus populations. How do strains spread through the world? How do strains evolve in response to immune pressure? And ultimately, what makes a strain successful?
I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Chicago and my PhD from Harvard University, advised by Dan Hartl. Following my PhD I worked for Wolfram Research on Wolfram|Alpha, worked on infectious disease dynamics at the University of Michigan with Mercedes Pascual and worked on viral phylogenetics with Andrew Rambaut at the University of Edinburgh.
