String and combinatorial problems in bioinformatics and computational biology

Dr. Gusfield's primary interests involve the efficiency of algorithms, particularly for problems in combinatorial optimization and graph theory. These algorithms have been applied to study data security, stable matching, network flow, matroid optimization, string/pattern matching problems, molecular sequence analysis, and optimization problems in population-scale genomics. Currently, he is focused on string and combinatorial problems that arise in computational biology and bioinformatics. Dr. Gusfield served as chair of the computer science department at UCD from July 2000 until August 2004, and was the founding Editor-in-Chief of The IEEE/ACM Transactions of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics until January 2009.

Dan Gusfield received his Ph.D. in 1980 from UC Berkeley, working with Richard Karp, and was an Assistant Professor at Yale University from 1980 to 1986. His dissertation concerned problems of sensitivity analysis in graphs, network flow and Matroid theory. In January 1987 Dan moved to UC Davis . In July 2016, he was promoted to the rank of Distinguished Professor.
