Postdoctoral Research Associate
Computational and Genomic Epidemiology
My interests focus on the evolutionary genetics of emerging viruses, the effects of sparse genomic sampling on the inference of viral spread, and the integration of genomic, epidemiological and human mobility data to reconstruct viral epidemics. I am particularly interested in viral spillovers and the early spread following such events. This work has been mostly developed in countries where epidemic genomic data acquisition is currently in development—particularly in Latin America, where data integration can potentiate surveillance efforts. I focus primarily on the implementation of viral phylogenetic tools and spatial statistical models.
