PI: Dan Schrider


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics at UNC-Chapel Hill. I recently completed a postdoc with Andrew Kern at Rutgers University, where we worked on detecting the footprints of natural selection in the genome. Prior to that I did my PhD with Dr. Matthew Hahn at Indiana University, studying genomic copy number variation. I also received my undergraduate training in Computer Science at Indiana University.

Anton Suvorov

Anton is working on applying machine learning techniques to problems in phylogenetics and population genetics. Anton joined the lab in 2018 after completing his PhD with Seth Bybee at Brigham Young University. Prior to that he worked with Christian Schlötterer Andreas Futschik at the University of Vienna after receiving his undergraduate and master's training at Moscow State University.

Ariella Gladstein

Ariella is working on applying machine learning techniques to problems in population genetics. Ariella joined the lab in 2018 after completing her PhD with Michael Hammer at the University of Arizona, where she worked on inferring human demographic history from whole chromosomes and SNP array data with Approximate Bayesian Computation. She received her undergraduate training in Mathematical Biology and Russian at Beloit College.

Logan Whitehouse

Logan is a BBSP grad student currently performing a rotation in the Schrider Lab. He is working on applying machine learning techniques to problems in population genetics. Logan completed his Bachelor's in Biology and Master's in Bioinformatics at IUPUI, where he worked on neuronal GPCR signaling and electrophysiology data analysis in mouse models of genetics-driven obesity.

Dylan Ray

Dylan joined the lab as a programmer in the summer of 2019. He is a man of mystery.

Louie Schrider (Dog)

The Schrider Lab is still looking to grow. In the mean time we are filling out the website with a picture of my dog. We could count him as a real member—while he doesn't really do anything that directly helps our research, he does boost morale—but we are looking for real human members, so please contact me if interested!
