Biographical sketch

Simon Dellicour is a bioengineer graduated at the University of Louvain (UCLouvain) in 2009. He subsequently did a PhD under the supervision of Patrick Mardulyn (ULB, 2009-13), a first post-doc in the team of Oliver Pybus at the University of Oxford (2013-15), a second post-doc in the group of Philippe Lemey at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven, 2015-18), and then joined the Spatial Epidemiology Lab in October 2018 for his third post-doc. In 2020, he became an FNRS Research Associate, a permanent academic position awarded by the Belgian Fonds National pour la Recherche Scientifique. Simon is also a Visiting Professor at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven, Rega Institute, Evolutionary and Computational Virology lab)

Research interests

Simon has broad interests in molecular and spatial epidemiology, as well as population, landscape and conservation genetics. His main research projects focus on methodological developments and applications in landscape phylogeography. He developed several programs and packages such as GCALIGNER, SPADS, PHYLOGEOSIM and SERAPHIM, and was also involved in the development of KOT, NOSOI, PHYCOVA, SPREAD4, and
