To turn the genetic blueprint into a functional organism, genes must be expressed in a specific temporal and spatial pattern. Finding the signals that control this expression and understanding their interactions is a key to learning the language of the genes. One of the first steps in this process is locating the regulatory elements directly encoded in DNA sequences. The focus of my research is to develop computational methods to locate these key regulatory elements.
I received a Ph.D. in Physics from RPI, but spent a large part of my
