Transmission, Infection, Diversification & Evolution Group (tide)

tide is a Max Planck Independent Research Group starts in June 2018. The group is headed by Denise Kühnert.

The tide group's main scientific goal is a broader understanding of infectious disease dynamics of modern and ancient pathogen outbreaks, as well as the dynamics of culture and language throughout history, and the potential demography-driven interactions between pathogen outbreaks and language evolution that shaped human history.

tide is at the interface of mathematical epidemiology, evolution, ecology and infectious diseases. We develop phylogenetic tools to address important questions in the fields of epidemiology, pathogen evolution and language evolution.
