"I would like to thank Professor Carnaval for her guidance, support, and dedication to my work. I would also like to thank my mom, Devi, and my sister, Sabrina, for their late nights listening to my presentations. I am grateful to my committee for their helpful suggestions and assistance. Special thanks to Eric Waltari for his guidance and answers to my millions of questions, and also to my lab mates for their support, encouragement, and for sharing several yet unpublished DNA sequence datasets that I used in my study. Last, but not least, I thank Dr. Roth and CCAPP for supporting my academic career."
