My Website



I am particularly interested in developing methods and tools that can be applied for genomic big data problems and can be used to lead us from innovative computational strategies to biologically meaningful results. In particular, I have been working on integrative methods for high throughput sequencing data from DNA and RNA based sequencing technologies to address challenges.
