Senior Data Science Fellow, Genome Sciences / CSE
Applications in Life Sciences
Our research group develops and applies computational techniques for modeling and understanding biological processes at the molecular level. Our research emphasizes the application of statistical and machine learning techniques, such as hidden Markov models and support vector machines. We apply these techniques to various types of biological data, including DNA and protein sequence data, as well as gene expression data from microarray experiments. We are currently developing methods for analyzing shotgun proteomics data, for characterizing protein function, structure and interactions, and for understanding the structure and regulatory influence of chromatin.
