Dr Stephane Hue
Stephane is a computational biologist specialised in viral evolution and molecular epidemiology. His interests are in reconstructing transmission dynamics on the basis of viral gene sequences.
He primarily studies patterns of pathogen transmission through the joint analysis of epidemiological and gene sequence data. Stephane work involves the implementation of statistical models in phylogenetic studies, particularly in the context of reconstructing time and spatial trends of viral transmissions.
While his research activity was primarily oriented towards the study of HIV-1, he is applying his skills to a broad range of viruses and bacteria, including Dengue virus, Ebola virus and Streptococcus pneumonia.
