Research interests

Bioinformatics Genomics Machine Learning Feature Selection Computational Biology Gene Regulation

About

My primary research interests are bioinformatics, computational biology, machine learning and integrative analysis of high throughput sequencing data including ChIP-seq, DNase-seq, RNA-seq, GRO-seq and Hi-C with an emphasis on regulatory genomics and epigenomics. The main focus of my recent research has been to develop computational methods and resources, and to perform integrative analysis, to help the research community in studying the functional importance of super-enhancers and to answer many outstanding questions. My long-term research goal is to develop computational methods and tools for integrative analysis of heterogeneous, high-throughput sequencing data to understand the transcriptional and epigenetic control of gene regulation in development and disease. Apart from research, I am a strong advocate of open science, open source, open access, and the use of social media in research as a way to advance research more broadly.
