Areas: 1) Algorithms (exact and approximation), 2) Bioinformatics

Summary: Currently we are most interested in APPROXIMATION ALGORITHM design and analysis.

We work on some problems listed in "A compendium of NP optimization problems" and their variants formulated out of multi-omics research and operations research. We are also interested in some aspects of BIOINFORMATICS research such as theoretical computational biology and applications in cheminformatics and omics.

Graduate study applicants interested in join the group are expected to have matching research interests, and ideally refer to some of our past work in the first round of communication.
