Main Focus

Interests:
My research is focused on two topics: computational genomics and population genetics. In computational genomics
I use efficient string searching algorithms to compare closely related genomes. Problems thus addressed include the quantification of genome repetitiveness and the estimation of evolutionary distances between unaligned genomes.
In population genetics I have in the past worked on topics including the detection of recombination and the simulation of genetic hitchhiking. I am currently investigating evolution in structured populations.

Research fields:
Bioinformatics
Computational genomics
Population genetics
String searching
Coalescent
Speciation
