Research interests

My research interests focus on understanding mechanisms underlying patterns of genetic diversity in natural populations. More specifically, I am interested in studying the impacts of natural selection in the genome. To do so, I use computational approaches and develop new inference tools for genomic data.

The current aim of my PhD thesis is to develop a method to detect and measure polygenic selection in human gene networks, by combining bioinformatics algorithms and population genetics concepts.
