  • Stochastic processes, Applied probability.

  • Mathematical population genetics.

  • Probability distributions of gene frequencies in populations modelled by diffusion and coalescent processes.

  • Probability distributions of genealogical processes.

  • Probability distributions of gene phylogenies which can be deduced from mutation patterns on DNA sequences.

  • Computational algorithms for ancestral inference, such as algorithms to estimate mutation, recombination, migration and selection rates, the time to the most recent common ancestor of DNA sequences, and ages of mutations.

I am a member of the Mathematical Genetics Group

GENETREE software for ancestral inference.
