I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. Prior to joining the faculty at Colorado State University, I worked as a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the University of California, San Diego in Pavel Pevzner's lab. In November 2010, I received my doctorate degree in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo under the supervision of Ming Li and Prabhakar Ragde.
My research aims to design and implement efficient algorithms that solve computational problems in genomics and transcriptomics. I frequently collaborate with biologists, mathematicians and clinician scientists in the tool development in order to ensure their practical application.
My research efforts have been recognized in the way of research fellowships and awards from the following granting agencies: NSERC: The Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Google, and GO-Bell. For more information about some of my research projects visit my research page.
