I have learned that what is important in career success is to try hard. I’d like to thank all my mentors who helped me to learn under their guidance, that they’re tirelessly helped me to learn different techniques.

Bioinformatics skills isĀ  acquired through time, it requires knowledge in Biology, statistics and computer programming. Overtime, I have learnedĀ  aspects of these fields in the diverse research environment. Now I collaborate with multiple investigators with different field of research.

I DO ASPECTS PROTEOMICS, METABOLOMICS, GENOMICS, PERSONALIZED MEDICINE,TOXICOLOGY, ONCOLOGY, BIOSIGNATURE DISCOVERY, INFECTIOUS DISEASES, and EPIDEMIOLOGY.

My research is focused on analytics at the intersection of human health and large, complex sets of data. I conduct Bioinformatics analysis and research in support of projects across the members of Center of Human Health and the Environment(CHHE) and Bioinformatics Research Center (BRC) as a collaboration. I perform consultation at the design stage of research studies to insure that the experimental design of the studies are valid, efficient, and correctly powered. My expertise includes a broader ranges such as cancer genomics, immunology, infectious diseases, epidemiology and application development; my domain expertise includes proteomics, metabolomics, genomics, personalized medicine,and biosignature discovery. I have worked with collaborators on discoveries relating to cancer, infectious disease,immunology, environmental exposure and application development. I have analytical capabilities of whole genome/exome sequencing, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, FAIRE-Seq, small/long ncRNA transcriptome, microbiome, and expression/genotype microarrays.
