About my research: My goal is to create novel and efficient algorithms that aid in the analysis and storage of unstructured and semi-structured data. My dissertation research focused on developing algorithms that enable scientists to efficiently analyze, store and share their large collections of evolutionary trees. In addition to expanding my dissertation research, I conduct and collaborate on research projects related to analyzing protein and gene networks, small SBC clusters, and parallel text mining applications.
