Recruiting The postdoctoral position in Discrete Mathematical Biology for 2012 has been filled. If interested in future opportunities, please send a brief CV.
Research 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.
Funding 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.
Meetings 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.
Service I serve on the Board of Advisors for NIMBioS and participate in the Visiting Lecturer Program through MBI. Locally, I am involved in initiatives at Tech to connect math with biology.
Affiliations 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.
Advising 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: Mathematics, ACO, CSE, and Bioinformatics.
Teaching This fall, I am again teaching Math 2803 HEH: Foundations of Mathematical Proof, offered as a special topics course. I first taught this new "bridge" class (from calculus to upper level mathematics) in Fall 2012 and then in Spring 2013. Previously at Tech, I have taught Math 2406: Abstract Vector Spaces, Math 2602: Linear and Discrete Mathematics (twice), Math 3012: Applied Combinatorics (twice), our two semester Abstract Algebra sequence, Math 4107 and Math 4108, and our two semester Analysis sequence, Math 4317 and Math 4318. In spring 2008, I taught a special topics course Math 8803/4803: Discrete Mathematical Biology.
