I am currently an associate professor in the
Department of Mathematics of
Simon Fraser University.
I was previously with the
Computer Science Department
Université du Québec à Montréal.
I am a member of the following labs, groups and programs:
School of Computing Science, SFU (associate member),
SFU Discrete Mathematics Group,
Centre for Experimental and Constructive Mathematics (CECM),
Centre for Operations Research and Decision Sciences (CORDS),
Bioinformatics Training Program for Health Research (associate faculty),
PIMS International Graduate Training Centre (IGTC) in Mathematical Biology,
Laboratoire de Combinatoire et Informatique Mathématiques (LaCIM, UQAM).
Research interests and funding. (See
My current research
deals primarily with mathematical and computational questions arising
from comparative genomics. This includes problems on genome
rearrangements, gene families evolution, and computational analysis of
RNA, with a strong focus on algorithmic and mathematical aspects.
Depending on the sessions, I am teaching courses in discrete
mathematics, programming, theoretical computer science and
bioinformatics. Currently I do not teach.
I am currently on sabbatical, and thus do have administrative activity limited to the organization of the VanBUG seminar series.
News and links.
Applications for postdoctoral and graduate positions in 2013-2014 are now closed. If you are interested in applying for 2014-2015, you are welcome to contact me fopr preliminary discussions.
I welcome at all time applications from motivated undergraduate students
with good mathematical background and computational skills and interested
in doing an internship with me.
