My research is focused on mathematical and algorithmic
solutions to problems in bioinformatics, in particular in the field of
evolutionary tree reconstruction (phylogenetics).
The tools we use are from fields such as combinatorial
optimization, statistics and probability, mathematics, and
is characterized by ample collaborations with researchers from broad
disciplines under the general framework of a systematic analysis of evolutionary
processes aiming at finding biologically significant patterns.

In particular, I am interested in the following problems:
- Supertree Methods for Large Scale Phylogenetic Reconstruction.
- Analytical Detection of Horizontal Transfer.
- Convex Recoloring.
- Intra and Inter Genome Heterogeneity.
- Maximum Likelihood Phylogenetic Reconstruction.
- Hadamard Conjugation.
