Dr. Guifang Zhou to Join Phyleaux Lab as Postdoc

Dr. Guifang Zhou, a mathematician most recently at Florida State University, will be joining the Brown Phyleaux Lab in August 2015 as a postdoctoral researcher. Dr. Zhou, along with her Ph.D. advisor Dr. Kyle Gallivan and other graduate students at FSU, has been collaborating with the Brown Lab for several years on a project to leverage network-based mathematical methods for understanding the information in large sets of phylogenetic trees. This work has been funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (DBI-1262571). Dr. Zhou will continue work on this project, including the development, testing, and implementation of new methods. The tools developed as part of this work are available in the TreeScaper software package.
