Laura Kubatko

Professor, EEOB and Statistics
Faculty

I am an Associate Professor with a joint appointment in the Departments of Statistics and Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology at The Ohio State University. I am also an Adjunct Research Scientist at Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute, a Faculty Affiliate of the Initiative in Population Research at OSU, and a Faculty Affiliate of the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine at Nationwide Children's Hospital. During the 2009-2010 academic year, I was associated with OSU's Mathematical Biosciences Institute via a course release. My research interests are in statistical genetics, including the estimation of phylogenetic trees from nucleotide sequence data, linkage and QTL analysis, and the analysis of microarray data. My research in the area of phylogenetics/coalescent theory continues to be supported by grants from the National Science Foundation [1][2][3][4]. I am also one of the faculty associated with OSU's RUMBA program, which provides research experiences in mathematical biology for undergradautes under NSF funding.
