Research Summary:
My work is in computational biology, especially whole-genome studies. My collaborators and I develop and test new algorithms for finding and characterizing functional sequence, and for understanding evolutionary pressures affecting whole genomes. I am also interested in biostatistics, especially data mining on large experimental data sets, and in computational algorithms generally.
