Olivia graduated from Williams College in 2016 with a degree in math. Before beginning graduate school, Olivia performed field research on guppy evolution in Trinidad with Dr. David Reznick, and then worked in Dr. Alex Pollen’s lab at UCSF studying the evolution of cell types in the brain. In the Hoekstra lab, Olivia studies the genetic basis of adaptive traits, such as pigmentation and burrowing behavior, in deer mice. Using quantitative and population genetics, Olivia seeks to understand the genetic architecture and types of mutations underlying adaptation.
