I am a research fellow in the Department of Computing and Information Systems at The University of Melbourne. I did my PhD at Ulm University, Germany, supervised by Enno Ohlebusch. My thesis Compressed Suffix Trees: Design, Construction, and Applications improved compressed suffix trees in theory and practice.
I am currently working with Alistair Moffat, Andrew Turpin, Shane Culpepper, and Tony Wirth on the ARC-funded project “Efficient and Effective Algorithms for Searching Strings in Secondary Storage”. Furthermore, I lead a project which enables researcher to do whole genome comparison on commodity hardware. This project is funded by an Early Career Researcher grant from the Melbourne School of Engineering.
Compact and succinct data structures and their practical applications.
