Research in my group focuses on the population genetics of rapid evolution, using a combination of experimental and modeling approaches. We are particularly interested in human-induced examples of rapid evolution, like the evolution of pesticide and drug resistance. We also study the possibility of population-scale genetic engineering by CRISPR-based gene drives, which promise powerful applications in the fight against vector-borne diseases, such as malaria.
