My major scientific interest is the development of the approaches for representation and analysis of complex biological systems and how these approaches can be applied to the discovery of the molecular mechanisms contributing to complex heritable disorders.

Research Assistant Professor

The overarching motivation for my research is to understand how regulatory information encoded in the human genome is used to generate different transcriptional and cellular outputs.  The main focus of my work is to develop high-throughput genomics technologies that measure multiple aspects of gene regulation in single cells, for example, transcript levels, activity of regulatory elements, and DNA methylation.
