I am an assistant professor at the University of Idaho, Moscow.
I completed my PhD in Computer Science at Brandeis University with Jordan Pollack, and postdoctoral fellowship in the Computational Biology Laboratory, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School with Katie Bentley.
Research: computational methods in the study of biological and physical processes
Context: scientific computing, artificial life, and computational/theoretical biology
Tools: machine learning, functional programming, image analysis, and simulation
Our paper (with Curtis Rueden and Kevin Eliceiri): “FunImageJ: a Lisp framework for scientific image processing” came out in Bioinformatics.
I was a visiting professor in computer science at the University of Toulouse in the Fall of 2017.
I was the inaugural visiting professor during the summer of 2017 of the Center for Systems Biology Dresden, a new center created by the Max Planck Insitutes for Cell Biology and Genetics, the Max Planck Insitutes for Physical Complex Systems, and TU-Dresden.
