My work in the area of biomolecular computation focuses on design of DNA strands for molecular computations, and also on surface based DNA computations, in collaboration with the Wisconsin DNA Computing Project A goal of this research, which involves chemists, materials scientists, and computer scientists at U. Wisconsin is to store digital information in surface-bound DNA molecules in a scalable fashion and to perform logical operations on that information using enzymatic and chemical processes, thereby "computing" with DNA.
I am also interested in automatic methods for showing that cache coherence protocols implement certain memory models, such as sequential consistency.
