My work lies at the interface between discrete mathematics and molecular biology;
I am interested in combinatorial problems "as motivated by" and "with applications to" fundamental biomedical questions like RNA folding.
Publications are listed here.
My research is funded by a
Career Award at the Scientific Interface from the
Burroughs Wellcome Fund,
and an NIH R01 grant through the
Joint DMS/NIGMS Initiative to Support Research in the Area of Mathematical Biology.
Over the past few years, I have been an invited speaker at a variety of meetings including
I was also a visitor at the IMA in fall 2007 for the program on
Mathematics of Molecular and Cellular Biology.
I serve on
the Board of Advisors for
and participate in the Visiting Lecturer Program
Locally, I am involved in initiatives at Tech to connect math with biology.
Additional institutional affiliations include a
courtesy appointment in the School of Biology,
and associations with the Integrative BioSystems Institute,
the Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics,
and the Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization (ACO) Program.
Students interested in pursuing a graduate degree
in discrete mathematical biology at Georgia Tech can do so through a number of different PhD programs including:
||Last year, I taught a new "bridge" class (from calculus to upper level mathematics): Math 4803 HEH: Foundations of Mathematical Proof, offered as a special topics course in the fall and
in the spring.
Previously at Tech, I have taught
Math 2406: Abstract Vector Spaces,
Math 2602: Linear and Discrete Mathematics
Math 3012: Applied Combinatorics
our two semester Abstract Algebra sequence,
and Math 4108,
and our two semester Analysis sequence,
In spring 2008, I taught a special topics course
Math 8803/4803: Discrete Mathematical Biology.
