Biography

The advance of high-throughput technologies such as microarray and next generation sequencing provides an unprecedented opportunity to study complex diseases through a systems biology approach. Our research is focused on the development of computational tools to study molecular mechanisms underlying cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease using multi-omics data. We are also developing machine learning based models for the early diagnosis of diseases using a combination of blood biomarkers, images, and digital data. Our objective is to develop novel strategies for the disease risk stratification and prevention.
