Research

I am interested, generally, in statistical inference and applications. My main research focus has been in computational biology and bioinformatics with a particular emphasis on statistical issues in molecular evolution. Much of my work has been devoted to statistical methods for and analysis of sequence data. Example areas of interest include bootstrapping and inferential methods that are robust to model misspecification, methods for more realistic models of protein evolution and assessing statistical uncertainty about phylogenetic trees.
