My name is (Alexander) Niema Moshiri, and I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Bioinformatics and Systems Biology program at the University of California, San Diego. I work on computational biology, with a research focus on phylogenetics and phylogenomics. I am co-advised by Dr. Siavash Mirarab and Dr. Pavel Pevzner.

Aside from research, I place a heavy emphasis on teaching, namely on the development of online educational content, primarily Massive Adaptive Interactive Texts (MAITs). For the past few years, I have worked with Dr. Pavel Pevzner and Dr. Phillip Compeau in the development of the Bioinformatics Specialization Track on Coursera, and I separately co-authored a free online MAIT on Data Structures that is being used at the University of California San Diego, the University of San Diego, and the University of Puerto Rico. I recently gave a TEDx talk about the future of online education at TEDxUCSD 2017, which you can view below:


My main office is EBU3B (CSE Building) room 4252, and my other office is EBU1 (Jacobs Building) room 6510.
