This is who I am
Tyler Kent

I’m currently a Ph.D. student in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department at the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Stephen Wright. I started in September 2015 and am currently working on a few projects related to the causes, patterns, and consequences of changes in positive and negative selection following transitions in mating system and ploidy in Brassicaceae species.

I received my B.S. in Genetics and Genomics with a minor in Statistics from the University of California, Davis in 2015. There I worked in the Ross-Ibarra lab contributing to research on genome size evolution, scripts to improve population genomic software, and crop-wild introgression in Oryza.
