Assistant Professor
University of Sherbrooke

Prof. Nadia Tahiri is a bioinformatician, molecular/evolutionary biologist, and computer scientist. She is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and a member of the Centre de recherche en écologie de l'Université de Sherbrooke (CREUS). She is interested in the evolutionary history of species by integrating climate parameters (phylogeography). Postdoctoral researcher from 2019 to 2021, she worked on QSAR/PBPK model prediction in environmental health sciences at Université de Montréal, supported by several awards and grants. She is interested in the evolutionary history of species by integrating climate parameters. More specifically, she is working on establishing the mathematical and statistical basis for solving the difficult problem of classifying phylogenetic trees, as well as creating a new open-source platform for biologists to use these new methods. Nadia is also very involved in community initiatives to promote women in technology and to make committee programs more inclusive (the right moves for equity, diversity, and inclusion).
