My research group is focused on developing open-source software for multiple sequence alignment, phylogenomics, and metagenomics, focusing on large and challenging datasets. We also have active research in methods for phylogeny estimation for natural languages, and in community detection. All software is released in open source form upon publication, usually in GitHub (clickable links provided below with the name of the software). Within each section, the software is listed in reverse chronological order (most recent software first).
