Research Interests: evolutionary genetics, structural variation, positive selection, epistasis


Brief Bio: Russ started at UCSC as an assistant professor in the Department of Biomolecular Engineering in July of 2016. Before that, Russ was a Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley in Rasmus Nielsen’s lab where, among other things, he developed computational methods for infering and for simulating patterns of local ancestry in admixed populations. From 2010-2014, Russ did his graudate work in Dan Hartl’s lab at Harvard where he studied population genomics of chromosomal inversions, epistasis and comparative patterns of genomic variation.
