I am a professor in EECS and Statistics. I received the BS degrees in mathematics and physics from MIT, and a PhD in physics from Stanford University. I now work in computational biology and mathematical population genetics.

Research Interests: 

Computational biology, statistical genetics, applied probability

My research centers around computational biology and mathematical population genetics. I am generally interested in developing methods, using techniques from statistics and computer science, to address problems that arise from evolutionary molecular biology. I am also interested in combinatorial optimization, algorithms, and Monte Carlo methods.
