My research interests are in the area of computational molecular biology and the modeling and simulation of biological systems. My group is currently working most actively on three topics: simulation methods for macromolecular assembly systems, with special focus on more realistic models of assembly in cellular environments; methods for analysis of human genetic variation data, most recently focused on phylogenetics and population substructure analysis; and application of phylogenetic methods to study cancer progression.
