Research interests

My research aims to harness the signals of genomic regions associated with risk for common diseases to understand disease etiology. Specifically, I am developing methods to integrate genetic information and data from high throughput molecular profiling technologies (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, etc.) to identify genes and molecular pathways that influence disease progression, as such knowledge will ultimately facilitate the development of targeted therapies.


About us

The Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative brings together researchers from across the University to address challenges presented by our access to unprecedented volumes of data. Our research spans all six Schools of the University, from the underlying fundamentals in mathematics and computer science, to applications ranging from astronomy and bioinformatics, to medicine, social science and the humanities

In parallel, our research addresses important issues around law, ethics and economics, in order to apply Big Data to solve challenging problems for society.

Cambridge Big Data supports collaboration and knowledge transfer in this growing field.
