I am currently a Lecturer at the Research School of Computer Science, the Australian National University. Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral scholar, hosted by Prof. Pavel A. Pevzner, at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, the University of California, San Diego, and I received my Ph.D. in computer science from EPFL, and my advisor was Prof. Bernard M.E. Moret.
