Sylvain is a population geneticist with a general interest for statistical methods and theoretical models in evolutionary biology. His work has especially focussed on the detection of departure from neutrality in DNA polymorphism data, and disentangling the effects of selection from other evolutionary forces, such as demography or biased gene conversion.
He recently got interest in the evolution of sex, sex chromosomes, and species diversification. He has shown that the apparent lack of diversity in dioecious plants may simply result of a statistical bias, and wants to develop further models of species diversification including inputs of population genetics theory.
