I am happy to announce that I have joined Dmitri Petrov’s lab at Stanford. Dmitri has a lively group and they do very nice evolutionary work. One of my favorite recent papers from this group is on a soft sweep at an insecticide resistance locus in fruitflies (I admit that I may be somewhat biased – but who can resist the combination of a soft sweep and a resistance locus?).
I spent the last two years in John Wakeley’s group at Harvard, which I enjoyed a lot. I will miss the great people I met there, but not the Boston winter!
