Our work is motivated by the desire to understand molecular evolution, from the origin of mutations in individuals to their fixation in evolving lineages. To achieve this, we combine genome sequencing, phylogenetics, comparative methods, evolutionary theory, and bioinformatics.

E&E Joint Webinar: Some benefits of blue sky and open phylogenetics research for understanding SARS-CoV-2
In this talk I will present three new computational methods for phylogenetics: (i) a fast and accurate model selection approach (ModelFinder), (ii)
The thing I enjoy the most about teaching is that it makes learning new things a key part of my job.
