Welcome!


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics and Genomics Sciences and a member of the Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. I am broadly interested in Bioinformatics/Computational Biology research topics.

My primary focus is problems related to genomic architecture. In the past these problems have ranged from phylogenetics to detecting structural variation and gene fusions in human cancers. Currently, some of these projects include pathogen genome assembly and transcriptomics. My collaborators and I use whatever technologies are available but have specifically made use of the significant advances in genome sequencing made in the last few years.
