I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cell Systems & Anatomy at the University of Texas Health Science Center - San Antonio. I am the Principal Investigator of Oncinfo Lab.
I am a bioinformatician and computational biologist, and my primary interest is focused on developing new machine learning algorithms for analyzing complicated, large size, and rich biological data. I have experience with analyzing data provided by a wide range technologies including, next generation sequencing, ChiP-seq, and flow cytometry. I am interested in combining techniques from a variety of fields such as spectral graph theory, feature extraction, Bayesian statistics, Dynamic Bayesian Networks, and deep learning to develop novel algorithms, which can recognize the patterns in the biological or clinical data missed by state-of-the-art methodologies. I am very eager in interdisciplinary collaborations with smart biologists and clinicians to define and accomplish scientific projects with the goal of making discoveries in areas such as molecular and cell biology, cancer diagnosis and prognosis, phylogenetics, genomics, and epigenomics.
