I am a faculty member in the TSYS School of Computer Science at Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia. I earned a PhD degree in Computer Science from Brigham Young University, where I worked with Dr. Mark J. Clement in the area of multiple sequence alignment. Afterwards, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) where I worked on algorithms and evaluation criteria for sequence alignment. Before coming to Columbus State, I enjoyed several years at Middle Tennessee State University.
I have made contributions in the areas of database retrieval metrics, both pairwise and multiple sequence alignment, phylogeny search, and biological networks. In general, my research is centered on leveraging computational approaches to solve biological problems. Please visit my Research and Publications pages for more information.
