Dr Bernardo Gutierrez

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Bernardo is a postdoctoral research fellow for the Oxford Martin School Programme on Pandemic Genomics in association with the Department of Biology and Pandemic Sciences Institute at the University of Oxford.

His research interests focus on the evolutionary genetics of emerging viruses, the effects of sparse genomic sampling on the inference of viral spread, and the integration of genomic, epidemiological and human mobility data to reconstruct epidemic trajectories. He is particularly interested in the early spread following pathogen emergence, spillover and introduction events into new geographical regions.
