I am a Lecturer in Computer Science (Algorithms & Bioinformatics) in the Department of Informatics at King's College London and a member of the Algorithms and Bioinformatics group.

Prior to that, Nov 2011 - Jun 2013, I was a Research Associate in the Molecular Systematics and Evolutionary Genetics lab in Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida and a Visiting Scientist in the Scientific Computing group (Exelixis lab) at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS).

Earlier still, Sep 2008 - Sep 2011, I was a Ph.D student under the supervision of Prof. Costas S. Iliopoulos and Prof. Maxime Crochemore in the Department of Informatics at King's College London.
