I am a computer scientist, and a population geneticist – a computational geneticist in short. Simply put, I build computer programs to study the genetics of populations.

I am currently a Research Assistant Professor at the Center for Computational Genetics and Genomics at Temple University in Philadelphia, where I get to work on some very cool projects, with some even cooler researchers to answer fundamental biological questions with the help of computers.

My ultimate goal is to understand how species evolve from populations, and how their genes play a huge role in the incredible amounts of diversity we see in the natural world.
