PROFILE SUMMARY: 

My current work focuses on integrating meta-*-omic data and discovering novel therapeutics for human diseases of interest.

Previously, I was working on Environmental Meta-omics and Comparative Genomics mostly in the 'Great Lakes'(US) and deep sea hydrothermal vent environment.

I am always looking for new and exciting opportunities, feel free to contact me if you think I might be of any help to you.
