Brief Bio.


I'm a postdoctoral research associate working with professor Carl Kingsford in the Lane Center for computational biology at Carnegie Mellon University. I recently earned a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park, and defended my dissertation, Computationally Comparing Biological Networks and Reconstructing Their Evolution. My main academic interests include computational biology and bioinformatics, machine learning, programming languages, computer graphics, scientific visualization and parallel computation. I also have recreational interests in math, physics, music, politics and video games. While at Maryland, I've also had the pleasure of working closely with professor Amitabh Varshney on some problems relating to computer graphics and scientific visualization.

Note: I'm happy to announce that I'll be joining the Computer Science department at Stony Brook University in the fall as an assistant professor. I'll be looking for highly-motivated Ph.D. students interested in working on algorithmic problems in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. If you're currently a student at Stony Brook who is interested in this type of research, feel free to send me an e-mail.
