Richard A. Watson

Among the many interfaces between computer science and the life sciences (e.g. bioinformatics, biologically inspired computation, computational biology, biocomputation), my particular research emphasis is not merely to take inspiration from biology for new computational methods, nor merely to apply existing computational methods to biological systems, but rather to use algorithmics and complexity theory to understand the underlying algorithmic principles of biological systems (algorithmic biology).
