Research Overview: 

Dr. Wall received his PhD in Evolutionary Biology from the University of Chicago and trained as a postdoc both there and at Harvard University. Before joining the faculty at UCSF in 2007, he spent 3 years as a faculty member in the Department of Molecular and Computational Biology at USC. His research spans a wide range of topics in evolutionary and human genetics, including models of speciation, inference of population history from sequence polymorphism data, and analyses of whole genome association study data in admixed populations.
