About Me

I’m Arun Durvasula, a PhD student at UCLA in the Department of Human Genetics working with Kirk Lohmueller and Sriram Sankararaman.

Previously, I worked in Angela Hancock’s lab at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research studying demography in Arabidopsis thaliana.

Prior to that, I worked in Jeff Ross-Ibarra’s lab  studying demography in maize, developing analysis tools, and looking at crop-wild introgression in Oryza at UC Davis. I also worked as a bioinformatician for Foundation Plant Services developing methods for pathogen discovery with Illumina sequencing.

I study genetics, statistics, and computer science. You can find me on the web in the following places:
