Research Topics

Information and genetics:
We consider a systematic approach to stochastic models in population genetics, in particular, the Wright-Fisher models affected only by the random genetic drift. We use various mathematical methods such as probability theory, partial differential equation, and geometry to answer "How do genetic change factors (random genetic drift, selection, mutation, migration, random environment, etc.) affect the behavior of gene frequencies or genotype frequencies in generations?".
