Current Research

My current reaserch project is in Population Genetics and jointly supervised by Mark Beaumont (PI) and Julian Gough. The work is looking at how next generation sequencing technologies can be harnessed to analysie genetic variability at the population level. Specifically, my focus at current is on utilising Restriction-site Associated DNA Sequencing (RAD-seq). I am currently developing a series of computational tools to serve as a pipline for data analysis and manipulation, so as to facilitate the discovery and quantification of variant regions in organisms with an unknown genome.
