Welcome to Prof Mark Beaumont
9 June 2010
The School welcomes Professor Mark Beaumont as Chair in Biostatistics, a joint appointment between Biological Sciences and the Department of Mathematics. Mark specialises in the application of novel Bayesian methods to biological questions. For example, the use of gene frequency information to infer the demographic history of populations, changes in effective population size and patterns of gene-flow and admixture, and also to identify which gene loci are under selection.
