Miraine Dávila Felipe

Graduate Teaching Assistant
Université Paris Nanterre


I am a mathematician working on stochastic models, computational and statistical methods for evolution, phylogenetics and infectious disease dynamics.

Since October 2018, I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant (ATER) at the Laboratory Modal'X, at Université Paris Nanterre.

From April 2017 until August 2018, I was a postdoc with Olivier Gascuel at the Evolutionary Bioinformatics lab, at Institut Pasteur, in Paris, where I worked on the distribution and asymptotic behavior of the phylogenetic transfer distance.

I completed my PhD in Mathematics in December 2016, under the supervision of Amaury Lambert at the Laboratoire de Probabilités et Modèles Aléatoires (UPMC) and the SMILE team at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Biology (Collège de France), in Paris. My dissertation was devoted to the study of some properties of a class of branching processes, driven by their use as probabilistic models of epidemiological dynamics, in particular in the context of phylodynamic models.

My ORCID is ORCID logo 0000-0002-3013-2958, and my Google Scholar profile is here.
