Welcome to Michael DeGiorgio's web page
I am a NSF postdoctoral research fellow at the University of California, Berkeley under the supervision of Dr. Rasmus Nielsen. I am interested in using statistical population genetics and phylogenetics to understand within- and between-species evolutionary relationships. During graduate school, I worked on both theoretical and applied projects, including developing estimators of genetic diversity for samples containing related individuals, modeling human evolutionary history, and constructing and evaluating methods for estimating species trees from multilocus data. I am continuing to work on these topics in addition to new projects that involve the development and application of statistical methods for identifying signals of natural selection in genomewide data.
