I received my Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from Florida International University under the supervision of Dr. Giri Narasimhan in 2008 and 2007 respectively. I also received a M.S. degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and a B.S. degree in Biotechnogy from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, in 2001 and 1998 respectively. Prior to joining Notre Dame, I worked as a post-doctoral associate for one year with Dr. Mitsunori Ogihara at the University of Miami.

My research interests are in the general areas of Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Data Mining.
Currently, my research focuses on developing algorithms and computational tools for high-throughput biological data including next-generation sequencing data, metagenomics data, SNPs data, and many more. I am also heavily involved in projects related to functional genomic data analysis, microarray data analysis and promoter sequence data analysis. In addition, I have worked on projects including data mining on heterogeneous biological data, motif discovery using gene expression data and comparative genomics data, gene function prediction using protein-protein interaction data, and functional gene network prediction using gene ontology information.
My collaborators consist of researchers from both computer science and biological sciences.

I am managing ND Bioinformatics Core Facility, a component of the Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility at Notre Dame (ND GBCF). I am also affiliated with the Eck Institute for Global Health as a faculty member.
