Research Interests
The focus of my research lies in designing computational methods for deep-sequencing data analysis, with an emphasis on:
  • De-novo genome assembly
  • CRISPR detection
  • On the computational side, I am especially interested in:
  • Graph algorithms
  • Sampling methods and probabilistic data structures
  • Dimensionality reduction (rolling hash functions, locality sensitive hashing, spectral methods)
