The overarching goal of my research is to utilize high-throughput genomic data sets, mostly based on DNA sequencing, in order to build models that explain how gene expression is regulated. I have special interest in immune cells, covering various aspects of their biology, such as their differentiation, stability / plasticity, and response to acute stimulation.
