The main purpose of her research is to investigate the combinatorial aspects of recent problems arising in computational biology and data sanitization. Specifically, the goal is to develop new algorithmic frameworks to deal with pan-genomic and phylogenetic data, with particular attention to cancer phylogenies. She also studies new combinatorial methods to achieve privacy-utility trade-offs for individual data dissemination.
