Assistant Professor of Computer Science
My group develops methods in computational biology, with an emphasis on sequence analysis:
- development of algorithms that increase the speed and power of homology search using profile hidden Markov models,
- implementation of those methods in the highly-used HMMER homology search toolkit, and
- application of these methods to biology-motivated topics, especially those involving transposable elements and regulatory elements.

The lab has open positions for motivated postdocs and students at all levels (PhD, Masters, Undergrad). Please drop me a line if you'd like to discuss possibilities.
