We're thrilled to have had so many wonderful people come through the lab. 


Pooja Narang, Ph.D, Research Scientist  Pooja received her PhD degree from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India in the field of Computational Chemistry. She has four years of postdoctoral research experience in computational data-analysis, bioinformatics, molecular modeling and in silico drug discovery. Her research interests include understanding the male mutation bias in mammals and understanding evolution of sex chromosomes and their relationship to diseases like cancer.

Tim Webster, Ph.D. , Postdoctoral scholar  Tim is broadly interested in using genomic diversity and divergence to understand evolution and demography. His dissertation research explored the genomic signals of speciation and diversification in the adaptive radiation of macaques, a group of monkeys found in Africa and Asia. In the Wilson Sayres lab, he is interested in contrasting information from the sex chromosomes with that from the autosomes to better understand the role of sex-specific evolutionary and demographic processes in shaping diversity.
