Personal profile

Research interests

My research is focused on studying the evolutionary process that shape natural variation and linking natural (epi)genetic variation with phenotypic variation. My work utilizes population genetic frameworks and data derived from genetic, genomics, phylogenomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics and network biology to investigate research questions of interest.
