I am a tenure-track assistant professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Delaware. My research focus on applied probability/statistics and phylogenetics, with an emphasis on the development of next-generation Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods for phylogenetic inference.
From 2015-2017, I was a post-doctoral research fellow in Matsen Group at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Seattle, WA). I finished my PhD in 2014 from Purdue University, working with Dr. Greg Buzzard and Dr. Ann Rundell on computational methods for experimental design and control of biological systems. I received my bachelor degree in 2008 from the University of Science (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam).
