My research interests lie in the areas of Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Biomedical Natural Language Processing. I focus on the application of machine learning, data mining and natural language processing techniques to solve problems involving large-scale biological, molecular, and biomedical data. In particular, I investigate approaches to (1) develop computational methods for functional genomics and (2) develop natural language processing tools for biomedical literature. Current projects include developing an automated biocuration pipeline for mental health and developing computational methods for predicting phenotypic abonormalities for proteins.
