Ph.D., Computer Science, University of Washington, 1992

Research summary

My research interests are in the area of computational tools for genome, metagenome, and transcriptome analysis. Since 1997 I have worked primarily on bioinformatics support and analysis of bacterial genome projects. I developed or helped develop tools of various kinds, such as a lipoprotein prediction tool, genome contig scaffolder, a bacterial genome annotation system, and database models for genomic data.

I'm also interested in general algorithmic development, especially for combinatorial optimization problems, in the history of science and philosophy, and hiking.
