Postdoctoral scholar
Stanford University, School of Medicine, Cardiovascular Institute
My major fields of interest are computational biology and bioinformatics, coupled with the passion for the next-generation sequencing technologies, and a profound scientific interest in genomics, transcriptomics, regulation of gene expression, specificity of binding of transcription factors to the genome, histone modifications, nucleosome positioning, long-range genomic interactions and compartmentalization of the genome. My research lies on the frontier of the contemporary computational genomics, with the emphasis on development and testing of scripts and algorithms for the analysis of human genome and transcriptome. My focus is the improvement of methods for the various applications of the next generation sequencing, such as chromatin - immunoprecipitation sequencing or ChIP-Seq, RNA-sequencing or RNA-Seq, and probing open chromatin, DNase-Seq/ATAC-Seq, in order to answer key biological question that will ultimately help us understand better the underlying mechanisms of life.
