Naomi is an MMathStat graduate from Newcastle University and her dissertation was on probability models for speciation and extinction. During the time spent on her dissertation, Naomi discovered her interest in phylogenetics. Her current research has two main goals. One goal is to build more biologically realistic models for phylogenetics. The second goal is to reduce the computational time it takes to run such models.
