Peter L. Ralph

I am an assistant professor in Molecular and Computational Biology at USC. Before that, I was a postdoc variously with Graham Coop, Charles Langley, and Sebastian Schreiber, in Evolution and Ecology at UC Davis. In May of 2009, I finished my PhD in the Statistics department at UC Berkeley, advised by Steve Evans.

My research uses probability and statistics to build models for evolutionary processes and to analyze genomic datasets. I particularly like problems with important geographical features.

Here are some cute baby pictures.
