Stacy is a second year PhD student in the Reynolds lab interested in human-pathogen coevolution and using genomics to measure population disease risk. She just completed her undergrad in Anthropology: Human Health and Biology at the University of Oklahoma.
Fernanda is a first year PhD student in the Reynolds Lab, who is interested in using bioinformatic approaches in omics data to understand human populations and diseases. Her undergraduate studies were in Biotechnology at the Benemérita
Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, Mexico.
Brooke is a graduate student in the Reynolds lab whose research focuses on genomic architecture of rare and common autoimmune diseases and how casual genes might differ depending on ancestral population groups. Her project is using genomes from a large biobank to look for causal genes, variants and if they share genetic architecture with other autoimmune diseases. Her undergraduate studies were in Forensic Anthropology and Biology.
Paige is a first year PhD student of the Reynolds lab studying the impacts of epigenetics and food insecurity on human health. She is continuing her studies after a M.A. in Anthropology from the University of Montana where she conducted a diet analysis using ancient DNA.
Savannah is a Science Research Fellow concentrating in genetics and anthropology. She is interested in using genetics to answer questions about the evolutionary history of Homo sapiens. Her current project is determining if common consolidants used in archaeology and paleotonology negatively impact DNA preservation and recovery.
Please contact Dr. Reynolds about opportunities for prospective graduate students and postdocs in the lab!
