I received M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from Czestochowa University of Technology (Poland) and Ph.D. degree from Grenoble Institute of Technology (France) in 2001 and 2005, respectively. In 2014 I joined SUNY at Buffalo where I work to date. Prior to joining UB I worked at Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute and Iowa State University. In 2014, I served on the joint AAAS and FBI working group on Big Data in Life Sciences and National Security. I am a founding co-chair of the ACM International Workshop on Big Data in Life Sciences (BigLS) and the Workshop on Parallel Computational Biology (PBC). I am a senior member of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), member of the IEEE Computer Society, the Association for the Computing Machinery (ACM), ACM SIGHPC, ACM SIGBio, as well as the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

If you are looking for ELaSTIC it is here! TINGe and GeNA are available as well! Visit software to download the most recent versions of my other tools, including Faster2 and Parallel TCoffee.

Outside of my professional life I pursue photography, touch on design and typography, and I am a big fan of Riverside, one of the best prog rock bands of a new generation. You are welcome to visit my virtual photo gallery!
