Research Interests

Pathway Activity Analysis in Cancer RNA-Seq Data

My project involves creating and applying computational tools that analyze cancer data at a pathway activation level. The genetic background of cancer is complex and can involve multiple signaling pathways. By identifying active oncogenic pathways, and the interactions between them, we are gaining a better understanding of the genetics of cancer, and are exploring ways to match cancer patients with the most effective drugs for them.
