Our research integrates mechanistic models of biological processes with population-genetic models to understand the forces shaping genome architecture. We generate high-throughput genomic datasets and use computational models to study:

1. How patterns of gene expressions evolve and how various factors influence the dynamics of protein synthesis.

2. How epistatic interactions between mutations affect protein evolution.
