Research Summary

My research falls at the interface of biology and theoretical computer science, specifically in problems where rigorous algorithms and analysis can have a demonstrated impact in the biological sciences. My main focus has been on genome assembly and variation detection, though I am interested in a variety of areas such as phylogenetics, graph theory, computational complexity, on-line algorithms, and networking.
