Research Interests

Research Center:

Areas of Interest:

  • Dr. Segre's research interests include distributed algorithms for discrete optimization problems, with emphasis on algorithmic problems in the biological sciences. This work has included protein structure prediction, high-performance computational algorithms in statistical genetics, and, most recently, graph-theoretic epidemiological modeling and cryptographic protocols for multi-site clinical studies. He is a long-standing collaborator of Dr. Vieland's and an integral member of the computational development team in The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital Center for Quantitative and Computational Biology.
