My research focuses on the development and application of computational and mathematical methods for analyzing biological systems. Particular areas of interest include computational problems arising in comparative and regulatory genomics, cancer genomics, evolution, and genetics.
Ben Raphael received a S.B. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1996), and Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of California, San Diego (2002). He then began an Alfred P. Sloan Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Molecular Biology at U.C. San Diego, where he worked with Pavel Pevzner. In 2005, he was awarded a Career Award at the Scientific Interface from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund. In 2006, Prof. Raphael joined the faculty at Brown where he is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science and a member of the Center for Computational Molecular Biology. Prof. Raphael's research focuses on the design of algorithms for biological problems. Recent interests include cancer genomics, structural variation in the human genome, and DNA sequencing technologies.
