My work focuses on the development of computational methods to the investigate the process of adaptation at different time-scales ranging from a few generations in experimental evolution data to phylogenetic analysis of multiple species diverged millions of years ago. In particular, we are interested in DNA sequence evolution by mutation and shifts of allele frequencies.
