I'm a Biology PhD candidate at Stanford University working under the supervision of Prof. Marcus Feldman and Prof. Alexander Ioannidis. Funded by Stanford's Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship (SIGF), my current interests are:
• To expand upon our historical analysis of Polynesian settlement patterns (see below), incorporating these insights into precision medicine strategies tailored to admixed minority populations who remain underrepresented in modern genomic databases.
• To extend the study of gene-culture coevolution (also known as dual inheritance theory), leveraging high-dimensional datasets across diverse disciplines to illuminate the dynamic relationships between genes, culture, and ecology.
• To help understand the evolution of languages, particularly creoles, by borrowing techniques from population genetics.

"When I say infinity, I mean now
Kiss the one you are right now
Kiss your body up and down, other than your elbows
'Cause as for your elbows, they're on their own
Wandering like a rolling stone
Rubbing up against the edges of experience"
Big Thief, Spud Infinity
