Research Interests:

My long term research interest is in developing approaches combining state-of-art physical and mathematical modeling, computing techniques and engineering paradigms for better understanding of health, ecology and economics related issues and successively advancing bio/info/data technologies for the common benefits of our society.
Specific fields I have been working on:
1. Statistical Methods for Human Genomics and Metagenomics and for Microbial Ecology.
2. Statistical Modeling and Analysis of Time Series with applications to Microbial Ecology.
3. Statistics and Algorithms for words and strings (k-tuples).
