Dr. Elsa Guillot

My research interests lie in the modeling of complex system such the processes that shape human evolution. Particularly I am interesting in integrating social process in the reconstruction of human history, improving the current models for a better analysis of human genetics. I specially developped a new simulation tool smartpop (
