Research Interests

Metatranscriptomics in lung cancer. I’m working on using full RNA-seq in airway epithelial cell to discover how microbiome metatranscriptome influence lung cancer, and build classification model combining host gene expression and microbiome gene expression.

TB Progression Model. I’m working on identifying gene signatures for modeling Tuberculosis(TB) progression, based on baseline transcriptome of latent TB infected subjects.
