Bioinformatics, graph theory, combinatorics, computer science education


My research focuses on the development of novel bioinformatics methods associated with the application of modern sequencing technologies to studying RNA viruses and transcriptomes. Several of the algorithms I developed were incorporated into GHOST (Global Hepatitis Outbreak and Surveillance Technology), a surveillance framework created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

I have been teaching at the university level since 2010 and enjoying it very much. I am interested in pedagogical advances in teaching computer science and other STEM courses as well as cognitive aspects of learning.

I am a big supporter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society. As a student, I served first as secretary and then later as chair of GSU’s student chapter. I am currently a faculty advisor for the chapter.
