  • Our laboratory specializes in the research areas of Bioinformatics, Applied Statistics, Data Science and Machine Learning. We are particularly interested in integration of multi-omics data and electronic medical records for health care related decision support. Our focus includes the development of new methodologies, analysis and interpretation of high throughput sequencing (genomics, transcriptomics, microbiome).
