Dr. Bonner was born in London, England, and raised in Ontario, Canada.
After receiving his B.Sc. in Mathematics and Physics from the
University of Toronto, he worked in signal processing and underwater
acoustics at the Defence Research Establishment Atlantic, in Nova
Scotia, Canada. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer
Science from Rutgers University, in 1990 and 1991, respectively. He
was a post-doctoral fellow at INRIA-Rocquencourt, in France, and an
assistant professor of computer science at Indiana University,
Bloomington. Since 1991, he has been a faculty member at the
University of Toronto, where he is now an associate professor of
computer science and a member of the Collaborative
Graduate Program in Genome Biology and Bioinformatics (CGPGBB).
In 1999, he was a visiting professor in the Department of Computer and
Information Science at the University of Pennsylvannia.
