New contributor Arun Sethuraman

This week we’re pleased to welcome a big group of new contributors to the blog. By way of introduction, I asked each of them to answer a few quick questions about him- or herself. —Jeremy

Who are you? Arun Sethuraman, Postdoctoral Associate/Scientific Programmer

Where are you? Lab of Jody Hey at the Center for Computational Genetics and Genomics, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA

What do you study? I am a computational biologist, and I build statistical models and tools for population genetics. I am particularly interested in studying the dynamics of structured populations, genetic admixture, and ancestral demography.

What do you you do when you’re not studying it? I binge-read Man Booker Prize nominees/winners, write short-short stories/monologues/plays on my blog (www.wordsworthless.blogspot.com), bust myths about academics being unfashionable, and bike the Schuylkill trail.
