I am currently a researcher at the Center for Computational Biology at UC Berkeley, working with Lior Pachter.
Starting in January 2014, I will be an Assistant Professor at the Biomedical Engineering Department at UC Davis.
I will also be affiliated with the Applied Math and the Integrative Genetics and Genomics Graduate Groups.

Prospective students and postdocs

I am seeking motivated graduate students and postdocs interested in computational biology, genomics, and statistical signal processing to join my group. I am broadly interested in probabilistic models and algorithms applied to problems in genomics and functional genomics. Specifically, I am developing tools that integrate computation and experiment to address problems in RNA structural biology and in RNA biosystems engineering. My research is at the interface between applied mathematics, statistics, informatics, and biochemistry, and draws on tools from machine learning, communications systems, and optimization. Please look at my publications page to get a better sense of the problems I am working on.

If you are already a student at Davis or a potential postdoc, please email me your CV and briefly explain why you're interested in working with my group. If you are a prospective graduate student, please apply to the BME department and mention my name in your application.
