I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering at the University of Florida.  

Check my Google Scholar for all my papers.

My research lab develops novel analysis methods that use current and upcoming technologie for generating biological data and build resources–such as a misassembly correction method or a resistome surveillance method–that benefit both researchers in bioinformatics and life sciences. Each of our analysis methods incorporate the use of discrete algorithms or data structures.

The Boucher lab greatly appreciates the support from the following granting agencies: NSF III,  USDANIH (CCTSI)Morris Animal Foundation, and Windows Azure for Research.
