During his scientific career so far Gergely has developed quantitative models addressing questions spanning different biological disciplines. Starting from a PhD in Biological Physics his most significant contributions have been developing and applying probabilistic models of genome evolution that have opened up possibilities to exploit previously untapped sources of phylogenetic information in genome-scale datasets and, more recently, in developing analytical models and stochastic simulations of somatic evolution.
Prof. Szöllősi previously headed the "Lendület" Evolutionary Genomics Research Group of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the ERC "GENECLOCKS" Research Group hosted at The Institute of Physics at Eötvös University in Budapest and until 2013 July was a a Marie Curie Fellow at the LBBE in Lyon.
