I am a postdoc in Michael Zhang's group at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. From 2000 until 2004 I completed my PhD at Faculty of Computer Science, University of New Brunswick. My PhD supervisor was Patricia Evans. The topic of my doctoral dissertation was algorithms and complexity analysis for certain problems of approximate pattern discovery in strings. During 2002 and 2003 I also worked in Elisabeth Tillier's lab at the Ontario Cancer Institute. I attended UNB as an undergrad from 1995 to 2000, completing a BA (major in psychology) and a BCS (Bachelor of Computer Science).
