I hold a PhD in bioinformatics and Computational Biology with a minor in Statistics. For my dissertation work, I established the essential bioinformatics infrastructure in functional genomics studies using metabolomics as a systems biology tool. I have utilized Mass spectrometry for developing Human Embryonic (hES) and Induced Pluripotent Stem (IPS) cells based assays for drug toxicity screening, for developing a test for biomarkers of autism using patient’s blood and for detecting bio-markers for Escherichia coli O157 infection in cattle from blood samples. I am currently developing a computational metabolomics platform to analyze and visualize mass spectrometry based metabolomics data in JAX. In addition to metabolomics, I am gaining experience in next generation sequencing technologies and cloud computing by developing a tumor neoepitope prediction pipeline for personalized medicine. I am also participating in team of computational and single cell genomics scientists in developing the JAX infrastructure for mass cytometry data analysis.
