Research synopsis: 

I am interested in graphs, networks and algorithms. Lately, I have been applying my expertise in these areas to Computational Molecular Biology: we live in a golden age of exponential growth in the amount of sequence, structure, expression, network, and other types of high-throughput data that is becoming available for the study of genes, proteins and human diseases. I am interested in designing better algorithms to make functional inferences integrated across these heterogeneous data sets.
