• I am from Sweden. Sweden is nicer than Texas in the summer. Texas is nicer than Sweden in the winter. End of story.

    • Ph.D. in Mathematical Statistics, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
    • Parent of origin, mosaicism, and recurrence risk: probabilistic modeling explains the broken symmetry of transmission genetics. Joint with Ian Campbell, Chad Shaw, James Lupski, Pawel Stankiewicz, Jonathan Stewart, and James Regis. To appear in American Journal of Human Genetics, 2014
    • Parental somatic mosaicism is under-recognized and influences recurrence risk of genomic disorders. Joint with Ian Campbell, Chad Shaw, James Lupski, Pawel Stankiewicz, et al. (29 co-authors). American Journal of Human Genetics, 2014, 95(2), 173-182.
    • A Crump-Mode-Jagers branching process model of prion loss in yeast, joint with Suzanne Sindi. Journal of Applied Probability, 2014, 51(2), 453-465.

    My research is in applied probability and mathematical biology. Specific projects include: the shortening of telomeres; the transmission of prions; the evolutionary process of speciation; and the role of genetic mosaicism in genetic disease. For more information, visit this page.
