Research Interests

My research focuses on development of computational methdologies for the investigation of genomic variants of clinical importance. My research can be subdivided into following areas:

  • Human genomics: large-scale analysis of population genomics datasets such asĀ  ancestry analysis and genotype-phenotype associations
  • Comparative microbial genomics: Computational genomics analysis of microbial genomes for addressing public health issues and development of applied predictive tools for accurate identification and characterization of pathogens
