Lab Description

We are interested in developing scalable methods for performing epidemiological analyses of large viral (primarily HIV) sequence and phylogenetic datasets. Topics of interest include large-scale phylogenetic analyses, developing novel models of sequence and tree evolution, performing epidemiological simulation experiments, and developing methods for predicting epidemic outcomes.
