I’m Adrian Baez-Ortega, a (bio)informatician and doctoral student in the Transmissible Cancer Group at the University of Cambridge, UK.

My PhD research is on the long-term evolution of an 11,000-year-old contagious cancer in dogs, and my major academic interests are in understanding the influence of forces of mutation and selection on the genomes of normal and cancer cells. My side interests include evolutionary genetics, statistics, physics, astronomy, music and more.

I also like writing scientific dissemination articles for my (other) blog, divulgatum.
