Pierre Jobic is doing a master internship in the lab and exploring deep architectures for population size inference. It will lead to a potentially substantial extension of our work with Théophile Sanchez, Jean Cury and Guillaume Charpiat :

T Sanchez, J Cury, G Charpiat, F Jay (2020). Deep learning for population size history inference: design, comparison and combination with approximate Bayesian computation. Molecular Ecology Ressources DOI:10.1111/1755-0998.13224 Link

Pierre is also helping  beta testing and improving our DNADNA software developed by the lab and in particular by Erik Madison Bray based on initial code by Théophile and Jean.
Mathieu Michel recently joined the lab for a master internship. He will help us benchmarking machine learning and deep learning methods for population genetics inference.
Federica Pierini is joining the lab as a postdoc to work on our newly awarded Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) project "Evolutionary changes in human hosts and their pathogens during first contact in the New World".

This is a joint project with Emilia Huerta-Sanchez (brown University, USA) and Maria Avila Arcos (UNAM, Mexico)
Jérémy Guez is starting a PhD with Musée de l'Homme (National Museum of natural history, Paris) and our lab (LRI) on TransIA a project for Infering Cultural Transmission of Reproductive Success using Genomic Data.

Joint work with Evelyne Heyer, Fréderic Austerlitz, Romain Laurent, Bruno Toupance from the Eco-anthropology department (MNHN). Funded by CNRS 80PRIME.
Nicolas Zimmermann joined the lab part time and is currently working on demographic inference for human populations using Approximate Bayesian Computation and Random Forest methodologies. He is doing his M1 internship under the supervision of Frédéric Austerlitz (MNHN) and myself.
Join us for the PASADENA workshop (GT Digicosme) on Friday, February 15th
