As a trained bioinformatician, the interface of biology and computational science fascinates me. My primary research interest is focused on leveraging computational methods to gain insights into complex biological systems, with a specific focus on the immune system and genomics. I am very enthusiastic about the potential of network analysis and systems immunology approaches for discovering novel insights into the underlying processes of diseases such as COVID-19, as well as exploring neonatal immunological ontogeny. I'm especially interested in using genomics data to uncover potential therapeutic targets and biomarkers for these and other diseases. Overall, I am passionate about using cutting-edge computational tools to improve human health and advance our understanding of the human as a system.
