Dr. Dill received his B.Sc. from MIT and his Ph.D. from Carnegie-Mellon University. Dr. Dill is a member of the National Academy of Engineering; and has published over 150 papers, and several are among the most highly cited in computer science https://profiles.stanford.edu/david-dill. He has been working closely with the Peltz lab since 2008. Dr. Dill has extensive experience with computational modeling and analysis of biological networks and high-throughput data. He implemented a new version of our haplotype-based genetic mapping algorithm that was 30,000 times faster than the original version; and developed a metabolic network analysis program, which can identify the genetic basis for metabolomic differences. During decades of work in academic research and in industry, he has developed innovative solutions to difficult computational problems. Several of these have been distributed as open-source software systems, which are widely used in industry and academia.
After more than 30 years at Stanford, Dr. Dill became an emeritus professor in 2018, but remains an active contributor to the Peltz group.
