I am a computational immunologist with a background broadly within evolutionary biology. My research focuses on developing computational evolutionary approaches for studying B cell biology during infection, vaccination, and autoimmune disease. I am particularly interested in developing phylogenetic methods to characterize B cell mutation, selection, migration, and cellular differentiation during immune responses. As part of this, I developed the B cell phylogenetic analysis software packages IgPhyML and Dowser, which are part of the Immcantation framework. I also work extensively with experimental collaborators to understand adaptive immunity in a variety of conditions such as COVID-19, influenza vaccination, and the autoimmune diseases myasthenia gravis.
