About Arjun Biddanda Header Image

I am a second-year PhD student in Human Genetics at the University of Chicago advised by John Novembre. Prior to the University of Chicago, I spent 4 wonderful years at Cornell University and graduated with a degree in Computer Science in 2015. While at Cornell, I was fortunate to work with Alon Keinan and Amy Williams.

My research interests are in theoretical and applied population genetics, particularly in humans. My primary interests are in developing statistical and computational methods to investigate the evolutionary forces that have shaped human genetic and phenotypic variation.
