    My research interests include the areas of bioinformatics and computational biology. I use machine learning techniques to develop novel algorithms, and provide tools for efficient analysis of biological and clinical data, which are interesting examples of complicated, big data. I collaborate with clinicians and biologists by performing computational analysis on such data, and I am most excited when my study leads to a novel biological discovery, or an immediate improvement of clinical practice.
