Alexandra "Sasha" Gavryushkina


I  develop models and computational methods for Bayesian phylogenetic inference. These methods are applicable to a variety of problems in epidemiology, immunology and macroevolution. I apply the methods to reconstruct infectious disease transmission chains, infer epidemiological dynamics, and estimate species divergence times. 

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at University of Otago in Paul Garnder's lab. 

Previously I was a postdoctoral fellow in Tanja Stadler's group. I have a PhD degree in Computational biology from the University of Auckland (supervised by Alexei Drummond) and a PhD degree in Mathematics from Novosibirsk State University (Sobolev Institute of Mathematics).
