My research interests are evolutionary and population genomics. I think it is fascinating that we are able to learn about important events in evolution by 'reading' the genome of humans and other species using biological models, mathematics and computer science.
During my PHD I will work on the detection of gene networks that have been the target of natural selection, using information on gene interactions and polymorphisms in humans and primates.
