Computational biology, machine learning in evolutionary biology, phylogenetics, insect evolution 

Current Research

We are a Computational Biology lab that focuses on methods’ development and inference in evolutionary biology and specifically in phylogenetics. We strive to understand how different organisms evolve over long time periods by making meaningful inferences about their evolutionary histories using state-of-the-art approaches of machine learning.
