Research Bio

Infection with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) can cause severe respiratory diseases in infants. My research goal is identify the genetic mechanisms of susceptibility to RSV infection. My current research focuses on discovering the genomic alterations within the immune system of the infants with RSV infection by analyzing the patients' data obtained from high throughput sequencing, particularly RNA-Seq. I am also interested in algorithm discovery and development for next generating sequencing data analysis.
