Congratulations to Dr. Yufeng Wu on winning a National Science Foundation award in the Computer & Information Science & Engineering Division of Computing and Communication Foundations. His research project is titled “Computational Methods for Large-scale Inference of Population History.”
Yufeng is the sole principal investigator and the three year award is from 2017 to 2020.
The project aims at developing new computational methods for analyzing large population genomics data. The central technical problem is understanding how gene genealogy can be used for solving important inference problems in population genomics.
