My research interests lie in the intersection of biology, computing, and mathematics, focusing on tree structures used to model evolutionary histories, binary search trees, and ways to compare and visualize these structures. See my research page for recent publications and grant funding and treespace working group for recent activies. If you are a student (undergraduate or graduate) interested in working on a research project, please see my student research page.
With Prof. Megan Owen, I run an NSF-sponsored academic year research experience for undergraduates (REU) program. I am also part of an education initiatve, BridgeUp: STEM, at the American Museum of Natural History to encourage the pursuit of data science. While at Lehman College, my service included co-chairing their Data Science Initiative.
In Summer 2017, I moved from Lehman College to Hunter College. If you have questions about the Lehman College internship program, please contact the internship coordinator, Mr. Sameh Fakhouri. To resolve other Lehman College questions, contact the chair, Dr. Brian Murphy.
