My name is (Alexander) Niema Moshiri, and I am currently a Ph.D. candidate 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. I am co-advised by Siavash Mirarab and Pavel Pevzner. I also place a heavy emphasis on teaching, namely on the development of online educational content, primarily Massive Adaptive Interactive Texts (MAITs), and I recently gave a TEDx talk on the subject (below).
