I joined King Abdullah University of Science and Technology to start my Ph.D. study in 2010. I was a member of the Structural and Functional Bioinformatics group, led by Prof. Xin Gao. My research focus was on determining the 3D structures of proteins using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) data. My research during Ph.D. resulted in five journal papers published in Bioinformatics, Plos One, Journal of Biomolecular NMR, Scientific Reports, and IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics.
In 2017, I started my first postdoctoral training. I joined the group of Prof. Jianyang Zeng in Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences, Tsinghua University. Prof. Zeng gave me all the trust and freedom to do proper research. He suggested me a very promising research topic about 3D genome modeling using Hi-C and FISH data. My work in this project resulted in a Nature Communications paper that was published earlier this year (2019). Also, I worked on another related project about 3D genome modeling using single-cell Hi-C data. This second project gave good results, and its manuscript is still under preparation.
