Our focus is the evolutionary analyses of mutations and genomes. We use computational approaches to derive new insights in the field of phylomedicine. We also investigate the distribution of somatic mutations in cancer genomes (tumor phylogenetics).

We are also developing new statistical methods for phylogenetic tree reconstructions and evolutionary rate estimations to study cancer evolutions. These methods are expected to be employed for cancer exome/genome sequencing data obtained from a single patient.
