About Emily Jane

I do phylogeonomics! I'm using genomic data to track geographic population histories and connect spatial and evolutionary patterns. I just started a postdoc with Mark Holder working on the Open Tree of Life project.

Not tied to a taxon, I've worked on cattle - with a focus on Texas Longhorns, frogs, salamanders, simulated data, and chipmunks.

Current projects:

  • Investigating patterns of introgression in the genome of Texas Longhorn Cattle
  • Using spatially explicit simulation (DIM SUM) to assess robustness of phylogeographic methods
  • Assessing impact of dispersal distribution on population structure
  • Determining impact of ascertainment bias on phylogenies based on SNP data.

Other interests:

  • Herping
  • Bioinformatics
  • Python
  • Phylogenetics and phylogeography
