About

Postdoc at NYU School of Medicine.
(in the Microbiology department, supervised by Jeffrey Weiser)

I am currently studying genetic variation affecting transmissibility in cases of natural pneumococcal variation. I also work on bacterial GWAS, and have published software (pyseer/seer) to perform this type of analysis. More generally, I’m interested in methodology and software to analyse populations of microbial genomes.

You can view my articles on Google Scholar or ORCID.
