Raphaël Forien

I am a junior researcher at INRA (French National Institute for Agronomic Research), in Avignon, within the Biostatistiques et Processus Spatiaux (BIOSP) unit. My work focuses on spatio-temporal random processes and their applications to ecology and evolution. So far I have worked mainly on spatial models in population genetics (stepping stone model, spatial Lambda-Fleming-Viot process, spatial coalescents, etc.) to study the influence of spatial heterogeneities and population expansions (or front propagation) on the distribution of allele frequencies.

Before that I completed my Ph.D. in the CMAP at the Ecole Polytechnique, in Paris, under the supervision of Amandine Véber and Alison Etheridge. My dissertation can be found here.
