University of Missouri

Visit to the University of Missouri (in Columbia, MO) where I was invited to give two talks. The first one entitled « Bantu population dispersal shows preference for routes following familiar habitats » shows that the Bantu migrating people did show preferences for following savannah habitats. The second talk entitled « Automated reconstruction of Proto-Bantu using a statistical model of phoneme evolution » presented a new model developed by my colleagues from the University of Reading (Evolutionary Biology Group) which allows to reconstruct automated proto-words.
