Welcome Mathieu Fourment! Mathieu Fourment has joined our group as a postdoc, and brings expertise on phylogenetic methods applied to infectious disease. Mathieu comes to us from Sydney Uni where he worked closely with Eddie Holmes. He has published on methods to infer rate variation in phylogenies, and developed the Physher software to implement those (and other) models. He has published extensively on other topics, and has developed other software.

As we continue to grow the AusGEM initiative phylogenetics will be an integral part of what we do, so stay tuned for more great work from Mathieu and the collaborations that emerge with him in the group.
