I am interested in interdisciplinary research at the interface of Biology and Computer science such that systems-level and quantitative approaches are integrated to solve complex scientific problems. My general scientific interests include, analysis of biological data sets and understanding protein function using both experimental and computational methods. Currently, I am undergoing my PhD studies at KU Leuven, Belgium where I am working as a computational biologist. The primary objective of my study is to further our understanding of functions of small peptides/proteins and protein-protein interactions using existing tools and implement new methods in a programming language useful for analyzing biological data.
