About me

I am a post-doctoral researcher in Das Lab at University of Pittsburgh. Before joining Pitt, I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science under Professor Donald Adjeroh at the West Virginia University. I want to play a significant role in the process of creating and transferring knowledge through research and teaching. My professional objective is to pursue a research career at a university or in a research organization.

Current research in the Das lab has 2 broad arms: 1. Creative use of existing machine-learning, high-dimensional statistical and topological network-analyses methods for biologically meaningful integration of multi-omic datasets. These analyses help us understand immune mechanisms in a wide range of contexts, encompassing both natural and vaccine-mediated immunity. 2. Development of novel methods (at the intersection of machine learning and network systems biology) for the analyses of high-dimensional immunological datasets (transcriptomic, phenotypic and functional).
