# Ghazaleh Parvini

Before joining UMass I received my PhD degree in Computer Science from Iowa State Unviersity in 2021. I was honored to do my PhD unders the supervision of Professor Fernandez-Baca.

My main research interests are combinatorial algorithms, phylogenetic tree construction and graph algorithms.
