Summary of Research
My research interests are chiefly in the areas of computational and statistical genomics. My lab is particularly interested in developing high-throughput computational approaches that will help maximize the utility of large-scale comparative, population, and cancer genome datasets using large-scale inference and modelling paradigms from population genetics. In cancer genomics, we are primarily interested in ways to identify driver genes in tumour-normal samples and in the population genetics and functional evolution of somatic clones.
