Palacios Group

Our goal is to develop and use statistical methods to understand observed genetic variation in humans and pathogens. We are interested in efficient statistical inference and efficient probabilistic modeling in evolutionary genomics, infectious diseases and in more general stochastic processes that would have an impact in public health.
