Our work is motivated by the desire to understand molecular evolution, from the origin of mutations in individuals to their fixation in evolving lineages. To achieve this, we combine genome sequencing, phylogenetics, comparative methods, evolutionary theory, and bioinformatics.

The thing I enjoy the most about teaching is that it makes learning new things a key part of my job.
