Professor of Statistical Genetics

My research covers several areas in the analysis of genetic variation, combining the development of methods for analyzing high throughput sequencing data, theoretical work and empirical analysis. Of particular interest are: the analysis of recombination from population genetic data, dissecting signals of disease association within the HLA, methods for inferring genealogical history from DNA sequence data and de novo sequence assembly for the discovery of genetic variation. I am a member of the Department of Statistics and Director of the Oxford Big Data Institute.
