I am an assistant professor at the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics. My researches have been mainly focused on bioinformatics and computational biology. I'm particularly interested in developing statistical methods and computational tools for interpreting large scale genomic data from high-throughput technologies such as microarrays and second generation sequencing.

I am also interested in general machine learning, pattern recognition and large scale data mining methods with applications to biological and medical data. I collaborate closely with researchers working on epigenetics to characterize DNA and different types of histone methylations.

I joined the department in 2010 after obtaining my Ph.D. degree in Biostatistics from Johns Hopkins University, under the guidances of professors Rafael Irizarry (at Harvard/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute now) and Hongkai Ji. Before that I worked as a software engineer at several different organizations.
