Research Summary

My research focuses on computational biology and bioinformatics. Application and development of computational tools for analysis of large-scale biological data are our major interests.

Our lab uses multi-omics data including transcriptomics, epigenetics, metabolomics, proteomics, and single-cell genomics to address fundamental questions relating to Animal Genetics, Genomics and Reproductive Biology. Currently, our research aims are to better understand the regulation of fetal brain development in animals. Our future plans are to investigate how early-life stress and abnormalities impact brain health and diseases later in life. The overarching goals of the lab is to expand our understanding of fundamental biological questions and accelerate the transition from basic science to translational research.
