My research interests are broadly in applied algorithms, including computational biology, networks, and optimization problems.  I enjoy collaborating on new topics and prospective collaborators are welcome to get in touch!  Most of my publications can be found on Google scholar and I am also on ResearchGate.

I am part of the Applied Algorithms Lab at MSU.
