Overview

Broad research specialisms

My research focusses primarily on studying adaptive changes in insect genomes using High-throughput sequencing, phylogenomics, and comparative genomics approaches. I also work on applied aspects of genomics particularly in variation and expression studies focusing on molecular evolution as well as translating data-driven research into novel software tools and pipelines. I am interested particularly in the computational methods to study the process of genome evolution and understanding the dynamics of huge data system which can only be met via integration of data from different disciplines (variation, expression and epigenetic).
