• Best paper award

    Our paper has won the best paper award in GLBIO 2017.

  • Resources for programming

    Prospective students, especially those from ECE, typically need to improve their programming skills before they can do useful work in my lab. Niema Moshiri has shared with me these suggestions for online material that students can use to brush up their coding and algorithmic skills.

  • Postdoc position for the CNIHR project (HIV transmission network)

    We are now hiring a Postdoc for an exciting new project funded by the CNIHR program. See the call for applications below.

  • Fast coalescent-based support values

    Our new paper on coalescent-based branch support estimation just came out at MBE.

  • Gene trees from species trees (NSF 1565862)

    In this page, we will track our progress towards a project titled “Using genomic context to understand evolutionary histories of individual genes”. The project will be supported by an NSF award, 1565862, starting July 2016.

  • Material for prospective students

    Prospective students, especially those from ECE, typically wonder what kind of work my area of research entails. Here is some background reading material that can help:

  • Making my dissertation available

    Update: My dissertation is now available at the UT library.

  • Joining UCSD

    I am excited to join the ECE department of UC - San Diego as an assistant professor. I have started officially since July 2015, and have been in the campus since the end of the July. If you are a UCSD graduate student, in ECE or other departments, and interested in working on computational biology, drop me an email.
