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 a professor in the Department of Evolution and Ecology at UC Davis.

Vince Buffalo
Vince joined the lab in 2015 as a PhD student. Vince works on theory and methods for understanding the impact of linked selection. Previously he worked as a bioinformatics wiz in various labs. You can find his book on bioinformatics book here.

Erin Calfee

Erin_pictureErin is a graduate student in the Coop lab working on genomic methods to answer questions about natural selection within hybrid zones, the evolution of reproductive isolation, and the role of admixture in various natural systems. She started her PhD in 2015 and previously earned a bachelor’s at Brown University, where she studied history (of people, not genomes).

Emily Josephs

em_20valleycroppedEmily is a NSF plant genome postdoc working on adaptation to domestication in collaboration with Jeff Ross-Ibarra and Julin Maloof. She has a PhD from the University of Toronto, where she worked on the within-population maintenance of variation for gene expression with Stephen Wright and John Stinchcombe.




Sivan Yair
Sivan is a PhD student working on methods to characterize cases of introgression, such as the timing and strength of selection, to understand the context in which introgressed alleles rise in frequency. She joined the lab in 2016 following her undergraduate at the College of William and Mary.
