Research Interests

My current and recent research projects are aimed at informing the development of more effective medical therapies; I do this primarily by leveraging high-throughput DNA analysis methods for profiling molecular, cellular, and taxonomic diversity. Throughout my career as a whole, the unifying theme of my work has been biological diversity. In my research, I have used methods derived from molecular biology, computer science, ecology, and evolutionary biology, among other fields. My interests have led me to work in a great variety of contexts, both medical and environmental. One of the challenges of research into complex and diverse systems is dealing with "big data," which has led me to develop several new approaches for managing and analyzing large data sets.
