My work focusses on statistical and computational phylogenetics and population genetics. In the field of phylogenetics, I am interested in non-independent models, in the analysis of next-gen data and large trees, in cancer phylogenetics, and in ancestral reconstruction. In the field of population genetics, I am interested in pedigree analysis and inference, in epistasis models, and in realistic models of drift, population size change and fixation.
