I am a bioinformatician. My work has been on developing mathematical and statistical models to capture the dynamics of biological processes, particularly in cancer. My recent research interests include: (i) association of genome, transcriptome, and proteome in tumors, (ii) recombination in mitochondrial genome, (iii) directional inference in biological interactions, and (iv) mathematical modeling of biological pattern formation.
