Episode 210: Family, Formulas, and Phylogenetics

Evolutionary trees hold a dual meaning in the life of mathematician, Dr Julia Shore.

During her PhD journey in phylogenetics, she used mathematical techniques to model intricate processes found in nature. But here's the twist – she did all of this while raising three children!

In this episode, we explore the field of phylogenetics, where maths meets evolution. We explore Julia’s work and  hear about her experiences of navigating the world of academic research while starting and raising a family.
