My research covers several areas in the analysis of genetic variation, combining the development of methods for analysing 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 assemblyfor the discovery of genetic variation. I am a member of the Mathematical Genetics Group in the Department of Statistics and Acting Director of the new Oxford Big Data Institute.
