My research is primarily in the areas of genetic data analysis, bioinformatics, and molecular evolution, and I am housed in NC State's Bioinformatics Research Center.
My colleagues and I have developed the molecular evolution software HyPhy over the past 15 years.
I am the co-director of the interdepartmental Genomic Sciences graduate program at NC State, where I co-ordinate the Bioinformatics segment of that program.
I direct the NIH predoctoral training program Biostatistics Training in the Omics Era. The goal of this program is to train PhD students in Statistics who understand the role of genomic data in modern biostatistics research settings.
My recent teachng has focused on introductory methodology for undergraduate Statistics majors (ST 305), professional skills for Statistics graduate students (ST 810A), and ethics and professionalism in statistics (ST 810E).
