My main research focus is in developing innovative and efficient methods to analyze large DNA sequence data sets in order to provide genome-scale understanding of cellular function. My current and past research contributions integrate sophisticated machine learning techniques and statistical methods that answer questions such as: what are the exon-intron structures of genes; how do we use RNA sequencing to reconstruct the splice variants that are transcribed in different cell types and conditions; and how do we use sequence data to determine the levels of gene expression?

My current efforts led to the creation of a new catalog of human genes and transcripts, called CHESS.
