My research is at the interface between computer science, mathematics, and biology. I focus on developing and applying computational and mathematical methods to biological questions. Specific areas of interest are:

  • Cancer genomics, including algorithmic approaches to analyzing genomic alterations in cancer and reconstructing tumor genomes.
  • Comparative genomics, particularly analysis of genome rearrangements in evolution.
  • Biological sequence analysis, including problems in multiple sequence alignment, DNA motif finding, and human genetics.
