Overview
My primary research interest is developing statistical and computational tools for integrative analysis of various types of large-scale genomic data. My current research projects include i) predicting chromatin accessibility based on gene expression, ii) developing new tools for integrating single-cell genomic data, and iii) discovering the genomic basis of heterogeneous response to cancer immunotherapy.
