Research Interests

My research interests focus on the various evolutionary processes that have shaped genomes. My current focus is on viral evolution and in particular, endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) that constitute a substantial fraction of vertebrate genomes. I am interested in understanding the circumstances under which ERVs successfully colonize genomes, using structured models to gain insight into the dynamics of this evolutionary process.
