I study how demography and selection interact to shape genome evolution. My research combines evolutionary theory, genomics, and structural biology to better understand how molecular evolution in small populations differs from that in large populations. To examine this in natural populations I am generating whole genome sequences for multiple pinniped species, with a focus on the monk seals and elephant seals.
