UC San Diego computer science professor Pavel Pevzner's work has focused broadly on algorithmic aspects of bioinformatics. Bioinformatics has become a part of modern biology and often dictates new fashions, enables new approaches, and drives further biological developments. Pevzner's work focuses of DNA sequencing, proteomics, and genome rearrangements, the key areas of algorithmic biology. He authored influential graduate and undegraduate textbooks on bioinformatics algorithms and is now interested in new approaches to interdisciplinary computer science education and introducing computer science to education of biologists.
Pavel Pevzner is the Ronald R. Taylor Professor of Computer Science at UC San Diego; Director of the NIH Center for Computational Mass Spectrometry; and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Professor.
The 2010 ACM Fellows have made advances in technology and contributions to the computing community that are meeting the dynamic demands of the 21st century, according to ACM President Alain Chesnais. "Their ability to think critically and solve problems creatively is enabling great advances on an international scale. The selection of this year's Fellows reflects broad international representation of the highest achievements in computing, which are advancing the quality of life throughout society," said Chesnais.
Fellow is the ACM's most prestigious member grade, recognizing the top 1 percent of ACM members for their outstanding accomplishments in computing and information technology, and/or outstanding service to ACM a
