General research interests
My research interests lie in developing and applying statistical methods in the context of studying micro-evolution in wild populations. In order to do this, my projects mainly require Bayesian inference. Currently, I work in the context of population genomics and quantitative genetics.
My past research include mostly methodological work on (i) phylogenetic comparative methods to incorporate phylogenetic uncertainty and intra-specific variability, and (ii) comparison of methods to estimate the heritability depending on the nature of the phenotypic trait (Normal Vs Binary) and on different natures of confounding effects.
Regarding this last work, I published a tutorial on how to estimate the heritability, using the MCMCglmm package on R.
