Conference in Honour of Alison Etheridge’s Contributions to Population Genetics

This event will focus on various aspects of mathematical models in population genetics, and on the interplay between population structure, natural selection, recombination, dormancy, and other evolutionary forces. The conference will gather mathematicians and evolutionary biologists to present new mathematical results on stochastic population models yielding valuable insights into complex biological phenomena. This will also be an occasion to celebrate the many important contributions of Alison Etheridge to this field.
