Iain Mathieson


I am a postdoc in David Reich's lab at Harvard Medical School. Before that, I was a D.Phil student in Oxford supervised by Cecilia Lindgren and Gil McVean and then spent six months at the Simons Institute in Berkeley.

I work on statistical methods for inferring demography and selection from large genomic datasets. I'm currently looking at data from ancient DNA to learn about the recent evolution of humans, and the genetic basis of human phenotypes, including disease suceptibility.

You can find more details about my research here, or on my Google Scholar page. Most of my code is on Github and you can also find me on Twitter or my blog

I am supported by a Long Term Fellowship from the Human Frontier Science Program.
