The merit of science is letting smart people do easy jobs because they are so smart to identify the problem ahead of others. People like me, presumably less smart, have to deal with harder questions.

1) Theoretical Population Genetics/Human Genetics
I am interested in Theoretical Population Genetics , studing gene frequencies along the generations, especially with application to association mapping in the context of coalescence theory. I am also interested in topics like Population Subdivision, estimating recombination rate, using site freq spectra to detect natural selection with diffusion approximation... ... I am also interested in studying human evolutionary history and within population diversity.
2) Phylogenetics/Molecular Evolution
I am interested in Stochastic models in Maximum Likelihood based methods in detecting adapations in various of organisms, especially in application to viral evolution.
3) Association Mapping
I am interested in developping methods for whole genome linkeage disequlibrium mapping. I am also interested in Pharmacogenomics in the context of population differentiation.
