I was a post-doc in the group of Jonathan
Pritchard in the Department of Human Genetics, University of Chicago, while there I also work closely with Molly Przeworski. Before that I was a PhD student with Bob Griffiths in the mathematical genetics group in Statistics Department at Oxford. I’m now an associate professor in the Department of Evolution and Ecology at UC Davis.
Gideon is a student working between the Moore, Coop, and Shaffer labs. Gideon works on various problems in population genetics, Phylogenetics, and Herpetology. One of the foci of his research is developing methods to study spatial patterns of genetic variation and applying these in a variety of empirical systems.
Jeremy joined the lab in 2011 from a undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin, and worked with David Baum while there. He’s working on methods to detect adaptation in population genomics data.
For his postdoc Yaniv is working on various theoretical and empirical problems in population genetics. He did his PhD with Mike Wade and Leonie Moyle at the University of Indiana on a range of topics including genomic imprinting and coevolution. Yaniv was awarded the NSF biological informatics postdoctoral fellowship and the Center for Population Biology Postdoctoral fellowship.
Alisa is a graduate student in the Coop and Begun labs. Alisa did her undergraduate work with Ary Hoffmann and Charles Robin at the University of Melbourne. Her interests currently focus on the genetics of local adaptation, with a focus on spatial population genomics in Drosophila.
Flown the Coop lab
Joel Smith. Joel was a junior research specialist in the lab. He’s working on various projects on the evolution of recombination and local adaptation. He’s now a grad. student in E & E at chicago.
