PhD students and postdocs:




Lily AgranatTamir, postdoc. Lily completed her B.Sc. in
Mathematics, her M.S. in Genetics, and separate Ph.D. degrees in Molecular
Biology and Statistics, all at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In her
most recent work, Lily has pursued statistical population genetics, with
an emphasis on populationgenomic data analysis. Her work includes a large
study of the ancient genomics of the Levant region, and she is the author
of LINADMIX, a program for analyzing admixture in modern populations in
terms of contributions of ancient populations. In the lab, Lily's research
interests focus on populationgenetic models and statistics, particularly
on admixture, genealogical models, and identity by descent. (Dec 2021

Kennedy Agwamba, postdoc. Kennedy completed his B.S. in
Mathematical & Computational Biology at Harvey Mudd College in 2016 and
his Ph.D. in Computational Biology at the University of California,
Berkeley. His PhD work covered computational and empirical population
genetics of the humancommensal rodent, Mus musculus domesticus,
analyzing its demographic history through transatlantic migrations from
Europe to the Americas. Kennedy's research in the lab focuses on
population genetics of genetic admixture, with a focus on computational
methods and human populations. (June 2024  present)



Daniel Bauman, PhD rotation student (Computational and
Mathematical Engineering Ph.D. program). Daniel received a B.A. in
Mathematics from Princeton University in 2023. His undergraduate
research focused on mathematical modeling in biology, considering topics
such as evolutionary game theory, spatial modeling of soil nutrients and
nitrogen fixation, and ecological competition. In the lab, Daniel's
research interests are in mathematical evolutionary models, mathematical
ecology, and evolutionary trees. Daniel is supported by a Stanford
Graduate Fellowship. (Sep 2023  present)



Egor Lappo, Ph.D. student (Ecology and Evolution
Ph.D. program). Egor completed his B.S. in Mathematics at Stanford in
2022. His undergraduate studies covered many topics in mathematics and
mathematical evolutionary biology; he has completed research in the areas
of coalescent theory, cultural evolution, knot theory, and phylogenetic
combinatorics, including several projects in the lab. Egor's current
studies focus on combinatorics of evolutionary trees, coalescent theory,
cultural evolution, and mathematical population genetics. (Oct 2018 
present)



Maike Morrison, PhD student (Ecology and Evolution
Ph.D. program). Maike completed her B.S. in Mathematics at the
University of Texas, Austin, in 2020. Her undergraduate research
spanned a range of topics at the intersection of math, statistics, and
population biology, including phylogenetics and phylogeography of
cyanobacteria, disease ecology of brucellosis in elk, mathematical
epidemiology of COVID19, biostatistical analysis of vaccination, and
genomewide association analysis of immunological traits. Maike's
research in the lab covers many aspects of mathematical genetics, with
a current focus on population structure. Maike is supported by a
Stanford Graduate Fellowship and a National Science Foundation
Graduate Research Fellowship. (Sep 2020  present)



Juan Esteban Rodriguez Rodriguez, PhD student (Ecology and
Evolution Ph.D. program). Esteban completed his B.S. degree at the
Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México in 2016 in the area of
Genomic Sciences, and his M.S. degree at the Instituto Politecnico
Nacional de México in Integrative Biology in 2019. His research
has focused on human population genetics and genomics, with an
emphasis on population genetics of the populations of
México. During his M.S. work, Esteban examined a genetic signature
of ancestry from East Asia in the Acapulco region of México,
tracing this signature to the Manila Galleon colonial trade route with
the Philippines. In the lab, Esteban is continuing his work on genetic
admixture and the genetic history of Mexico. Esteban is supported by a
Stanford Graduate Fellowship. (Jan 2023  present)



Chloe Shiff, PhD student (Computational and Mathematical
Engineering Ph.D. program). Chloe completed her B.S. degree in Applied
Mathematics and Biology at Brandeis University, graduating in 2022. Her
undergraduate research examined a variety of questions in mathematical
biology, investigating topics with applications in cell biology,
epidemiology, and immunology. Chloe's research interests are in
mathematical population dynamics and mathematical phylogenetics. Chloe
is supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research
Fellowship.
