March 2024: I am seeking to hire a postdoc in computational pop-gen, with emphasis on developing methods that incorporate AI (deep learning, LLMs, etc). Please get in touch if interested.

About us

We are a group of statisticians, mathematicians, and computer scientists broadly interested in statistical and probabilistic models of biological data. To date, our work has mainly centered on problems arising in evolutionary biology, but we are always keen to learn about new areas and help other scientists understand their data. Please get in touch if this sounds like you!
