Research Interests

My research focuses on understanding genetic change of populations during adaptation to selective pressures imposed by the environment. In particular, I am interested in linking genetic with phenotypic variation by combining computational and experimental approaches. Most of my recent work is centered around the evolutionary arms race between hosts and viruses, which is a great system for studying genetic and phenotypic change. Currently, I am investigating the evolution of Influenza viruses (in Derek Smith's group) and also the genetic basis of resistance to viruses in fruit flies (with Frank Jiggins).
