- Post-doctoral Fellow
Dr. Beichman is a postdoc in Dr. Kelley Harris’ Lab at UW Genome Sciences. Her research uses genomics to learn about mutation and demographic history in wild mammals that have experienced extreme demographic events or remarkable evolutionary transitions, including sea otters, bears, and whales. She received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2020 advised by Dr. Kirk Lohmueller and Dr. Robert Wayne. As a BMHA trainee she will be looking at how mutation suppression may allow for healthy aging in large and long-lived whale species.
