Our group is based jointly at the Department of Statistics, and the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics. We are broadly interested in answering questions in statistical, population, and medical genetics. We develop and apply model-based computational techniques, and perform lab-based research. One strong focus of the groups’ research is the study of the basic biological process of recombination, and its links to fertility and health in mammals. A second focus is inference of fine-scale population structure – within individual countries – and the genetic impacts of migration events, in humans and other species.
