I obtained my PhD in computers science developing algorithms for performing operations on spatial databases. I did post-doctoral work studying the use of human alternative promoters, analyzing transcription factor binding affinities, and researching the cis-regulatory logic of transcription regulation in ascidians. I currently work with reconciliation algorithms to calculate species trees and gene trees, and the relation between the two, e.g. when where the genes lost or changed.
