Research interests

My research is focused on the computational analysis of biological sequences (DNA, RNA and proteins). The main research interests include:
  • prediction of protein structure and function from the primary sequence,
  • development of stochastic models for analyzing biological sequences,
  • large-scale genome analyses,
  • development of methodology for genetic association and gene expression studies (See more).


I have co-authored more than 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals (Total ISI Impact Factor = 333.603) . For a complete list of publications see here.
