Research interests

My research interests are in evolutionary biology and ecology. In my masters' thesis I developed a computer model based on an artificial neural network. The goal was to estimate the shoot density of Posidonia oceanica meadows from physical, geographic and topographic variables.

My PhD project focuses on the genetic signature of polygenic adaptation. An analytical and numerical description of the polygenic footprint of selection under a wide range of scenarios is among the objectives of my project. In particular, statistical methods to detect polygenic selection will be developed and applied to DNA polymorphism data. Furthermore, I will contribute to extend Greg Ewing's coalescent simulator msms to be able to deal with polygenic selection.
