Myriam Croze
Ph.D. in Evolution and Population Genetics, University of Munich (Germany)

Position : Postdoc in Evolutionary Genomics and Molecular Anthropology

Research topics :
I am interested in the evolution of human genome their adaptation to the environment. I am also interested in understanding how natural selection plays a role in shaping the distribution of genetic diversity in human populations.

Current research :
I am part of the HEARVOLUTION project led by Dr Balaresque Patricia. I am working on the evolution of hearing in primates and human populations. My current research is about phylogenetic analysis of genes involved in hearing.

Research experiences :
During my master’s degree, I conducted studies on the genetic diversity and molecular evolution of human and primates. My PhD was essentially based on analyzing next-generation genome data and using population genetics tools on the whole genome of drosophila in order to find signatures of balancing selection. My goal was to understand if balancing selection was common in the genome of Drosophila melanogaster and which genes were under this selection.
