Palacios Lab

I am interested in developing statistical methods to better understand complex stochastic phenomenons. I am currently working on 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.

Our group is working on diverse topics that include the development of Bayesian nonparametric methods, new tools for computational statistics, development of new coalescent models and efficient MCMC methods. We are working on several applications in genetics, biology, health and cancer.
