Research overview

My primary focus is genome biology, especially the application of machine learning and bioinformatics to understand the evolution and operation of DNA sequence. To date I have applied these methods to human, mouse, chicken, rat and kinetoplastid and apicomplexan parasite genomes, and I am expanding my work to understand the interaction of populations with respect to genome sequence through metagenomics in the context of marine and ocean biology.
