My research is motivated by the data generated by high-throughput biological experiments. I am interested in both developing the necessary computational infrastructure for conducting biological research and in understanding the fundamental computational structure of the problems being solved. Most of my recent research has focused on the analysis of microbial communities - a scientific field called metagenomics - with a particular focus on the microbes that inhabit the human body. A detailed description of ongoing research in my lab is available on my Research page.

Diversity matters to me
