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

Bioinformatics skills are acquired through time, and it requires knowledge in Biology, statistics, and computer programming. Over time, I have learned aspects of these fields in a diverse research environment. Now I collaborate with multiple investigators in different areas of research.

I DO ASPECTS PROTEOMICS, METABOLOMICS, GENOMICS, PERSONALIZED MEDICINE, EPIGENETICS, 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 the Center of Human Health and the Environment(CHHE) and Bioinformatics Research Center (BRC) as a collaboration. I perform the consultation at the design stage of research studies to ensure that the experimental design of the studies is valid, efficient, and correctly powered. My expertise includes such as cancer genomics, immunology, infectious diseases, epidemiology, and application development; my domain expertise includes proteomics, metabolomics, genomics, personalized medicine, epigenetics, and biosignature discovery. I have worked with collaborators on findings relating to cancer, infectious disease, immunology, environmental exposure, and bioinformatics application development. I have analytical capabilities of whole genome/exome sequencing, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, FAIRE-Seq, small/long ncRNA transcriptome, microbiome, methylation-seq, and expression/genotype microarrays such as 450 and 850k arrays.
