Photo I am currently a Research Associate at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn). My overarching research vision is to employ bioinformatics to understand the genome, decipher how dysregulation of biological processes leads to disease and discover novel avenues for precision medicine. My research interests revolve around data-driven biology, genomics, machine learning, systems biology, and large-scale data analysis. I have studied Physics, Biology and Computer Science and navigated my research at the boundaries of biology and informatics. My overarching aim is to develop novel, state-of-the-art, computational tools to mine and integrate multidimensional biological and biomedical data to discover new biology and address fundamental questions in biology and medicine.
