My research interests are in health/medical bioinformatics, with a special focus on microbial communities and their interactions with the hosts. I aim to integrate and translate bioinformatics tools for genomic sequencing data analysis into basic applications in healthcare and translational research.
Courses in bioinformatics, including but not limited to microbial genomics, programming (Perl/Python/R), and applied microbiology.
Using the microbiome to underpin its role in in disease and health as modulated by diet, environmental factors (including antibiotics use), and lifestyle among Aboriginal communities.
