I am a computational biologist who develops bioinformatic and genomic approaches to answer fundamental questions about evolutionary change. I am particularly interested in analysing functional genomic data in an evolutionary context. Applying the principals of evolutionary biology to functional data allows me to answer questions about the genomic basis of adaptation and the origin and maintenance of functional diversity within populations.
