I apply mathematics and statistics to problems in evolutionary biology or population genetics. In particular, my research has focused on problems in phylogenetics. I am interested in developing tools that can assess if sequence data is well explained by a simple tree model or if more complex processes such as hybridisation, recombination or convergent selection are at work. The areas of mathematics/statistics that I use frequently include stochastic models, continuous time Markov chains, combinatorial optimization, maximum likelihood, and simulation.
