Interactive data visualization. Metagenomics. Computational epigenomics.

What we work on

Our research focuses on efficient and effective interactive analysis of high-throughput genomic data. We develop new methods and tools from multiple areas in the computational and statistical sciences: basic bioinformatics/biostatistics, statistical and machine learning, data visualization and management, and numerical optimization. Applications include cancer epigenetics, metagenomics, pre-processing of measurements from high-throughput assays and disease risk models that integrate high-throughput genomic and other data.

Selected Projects


Interactive, exploratory visual analysis of genomic data


Interactive, exploratory visual analysis of metagenomic data


Analysis tools for large high-throughput metagenomics sequencing projects
