I am an Assistant professor at the Department of EECS and a member of the Center for Computational Biology at UC Berkeley.
I started my research group in January of 2014 after spending some time as a postdoc at the Broad Institute and Harvard medical school. The overarching goal of my research is to utilize high-throughput genomic data sets, mostly based on DNA sequencing, in order to build models that explain how gene expression is regulated. I have special interest in immune cells, covering various aspects of their biology, such as their differentiation, stability/ plasticity, and response to acute stimulation.
