Research interests:
Bioinformatics Algorithms, 
- Microbial community structure
- Machine Learning
- "Big data" visualization
- Network analysis

My research focuses on developing computational methods to find novel patterns in microbial communities via 16S rRNA sequencing. I am applying different statistical and machine learning methods to characterize microbial community structure and its relationship to its environment. I am particularly interested in predicting  the complex interactions between microbes.
