Research, Clinical, and/or Academic Interests

My research endeavors focus on leveraging the capabilities of multiomics and artificial intelligence methodologies to elucidate the complex mechanisms involved in traumatic injury and age-associated diseases. Through the integration of multiomics data with sophisticated computational modeling, our aim is to obtain comprehensive insights into the molecular signatures and pathways disrupted in these conditions.
