CEMinar: Parul Johri

"The dominant role of non-adaptive processes in shaping genomic variation"

Parul Johri will be talking about her research at this CEMinar. Parul is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher with Jeffrey Jensen at Arizona State University and worked with Michael Lynch during her PhD at Indiana University. Her research interest broadly spans population genetics and molecular evolution. She is interested in how non-adaptive evolutionary processes like changes in population size, recombination rate, presence of negative selection and factors such as genome architecture shape patterns of variation.  She is currently working on making statistical methods to measure the extent of such evolutionary forces from population-genomic data with specific interests in inference of demography and the distribution of fitness effects of deleterious mutations.
