Biographical Info

Harmit Malik studied at Indian Institute of Technology where he received a degree in Chemical Engineering. He then joined the Ph.D. program in Biology at the University of Rochester, studying the evolutionary origins of retrotransposable elements.

Harmit is interested in a variety of problems that could all be classified under the genetics of evolutionary conflict. He studies rapidly evolving proteins as a hallmark of this kind of conflict, hoping to better understand the molecular nature of the conflict, as well as uncover previously unrecognized sources of conflict.
