I worked as a research assistant at professor Robert Lanfear’s Molecular Evolution and Phylogenetics Lab during my exchange at the Australian National University (September, 2019 - June, 2020). My first project is to rewrite an R package, sangeranalyseR, that Rob wrote few years ago. I changed the R package into object oriented version, added shiny applications, and uploaded it to Bioconductor. The second project is using machine learning to estimate phylogenetic trees from DNA sequence data.
