“My main research interest is in evolutionary and computational biology. I am interested in comprehending the evolutionary forces acting upon individuals that impact genetic diversity. The current scientific scenario is prolific due to the availability of large and complex genetic databases. The growing computational methods using statistics and machine learning allow the extraction of relevant information to have a deeper understanding of evolution. I am finalizing my master’s degree in evolutionary biology using computational methods to understand the dynamics of gene duplications.”
