I am an assistant professor at the University of Idaho, Moscow, and a visiting scientist at Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Janelia Research Campus.
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
