I am a computational biologist specialised in statistical genomics, particularly in Bayesian phylogenetics and phylogenomics. I am also interested in chemometrics, transcriptomics, and population genomics.
I have a PhD in Agricultural and Environmental Biology from the University of Tokyo (Japan), developing statistical models for recombination detection and phylogenetic dating. During my PhD I also worked with QTL analysis and protein structure prediction. I then did postdoctoral training at the University of Vigo (Spain), at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland), and at Imperial College London (UK). During this time I created models for species tree inference, phylogenomic statistical learning, and hyperspectral imaging analysis. I have studied the evolutionary history of several groups, from viruses, malaria, and marine species, to deep phylogenies like the tree of Eukaryotes or the whole tree of life.
Currently I develop and apply phylogenomic pipelines to large pangenomic data sets, aiming at facilitating interpretation and integration with other analyses.
