I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer working in the Department of Computer Science here at Rice. My research is on the evolution of species and genes using phylogenetic methods.
Here at Rice, I am working with Professor Luay Nakhleh and his students. We are working on more computationally efficient algorithms for inference of species trees and networks, as well as more sophisticated phylogenetic models.
Before moving to Texas I was studying for my PhD, advised by Professor Craig Moritz at the Australian National University (ANU) and Professor Alexei Drummond at the Centre for Computational Evolution at the University of Auckland. I was born and raised in Australia, and studied for my Bachelor of Science at the ANU as well.
