Research Overview:

  My recent research focuses on machine learning in genetics and beyond (Omics). Specifically, in St Andrews Gaggiotti lab, my work mainly covers two aspects in ecology and evolution.

➢ Interpretation of Eco-evolutionary Feedback: Linking Environment, Genetic Diversity and Species Diversity Using Machine Learning Approach.

➢ Statistics, Machine Learning and Deep Learning for Population Genetic Inference
