Max Leiserson is an assistant professor of computer science and a member of the Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
As both a computer scientist and computational biologist, he develops algorithms and mathematical models to study biological processes, including cancer genomics, where he compares the differences between the genomes of healthy tissue and cancerous tissue in the same individual.
Leiserson just completed a year as a postdoctoral researcher at Microsoft Research New England. He received his doctorate in computer science and computational biology from Brown University in 2016.
Based in Silver Spring, MD
