Education: 
Ph.D. UC Davis 2004
Biography: 

My main research interest is to apply algebraic geometry and combinatorics to computational problems in phylogenetics, the combination of two major fields in life sciences: Genomics, i.e. the study of the function and structure of genes and genomes; and Molecular Phylogenetics, i.e., the study of the hierarchical evolutionary relationships among organisms or genes. 

Research: 

Computational Biology, Discrete Optimization, Algebraic Statistics
