Research Interests

Natalie is a computational biologist beginning a career in animal genetics. She's involved in improving the Horn/Poll test and genetic contribution programs.  
Key research includes upgrading the cattle Poll/Horn test, resulting in improved representation of uncertainty
(for both haplotype and genotype probabilities), and providing results for animals with uncertain haplotypes.
Natalie is also involved in developing programs for estimating individual genetic contributions and QA for genomic data.
