My research group designs algorithms, statistical methods, and software solutions for problems motivated by biological data. We are particularly focused on the annotation of biological sequences and the accompanying problem of searching for similar sequences within large-scale biological sequence databases, but our work also addresses transposable elements, soil microbiomes, drug discovery, natural language processing, and animal tracking and behavior classification. Projects in our group range from statistical modeling, to indexing and search algorithms, to low-level software optimization, to FPGAs, to deep neural networks, to web services.
