Research InterestsMy 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.
