Menachem Fromer is a computational biologist, computer scientist, and geneticist investigating the genetic causes of psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia, autism, and bipolar disorder. His previous work has yielded efficient algorithms for processing large datasets of protein sequences and clustering them into functional groups and families, accurate algorithms for modeling protein structures and protein-protein interactions at the atomic level, and general-purpose algorithms for finding multiple optimal solutions for widely-used mathematical models.
