Bio
Starting October 1st, 2011, I will be joining the faculty of the Department of Genetics and Genomics at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City as an Assistant Professor. I will also hold an appointment at the Genomics and Multiscale Biology Institute. Until recently, I was a post-doctoral scholar in the labs of Profs. Steven Brenner and Michael Jordan at the University of California, Berkeley. I am interested in developing and advancing computational methods to help address critical issues in molecular biology. Specifically, my research focuses on extracting under-utilized information in large-scale genomic data sets and the supporting knowledgebases to enhance the performance of protein function prediction algorithms. Previously, I graduated with a PhD in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. I worked in Prof. Vipin Kumar's group in the fields of data mining and bioinformatics. Before joining UMN, I graduated with a Bachelor of Technology degree from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India.
