I am a biologist by training with strong expertise in bioinformatics and microbiology, next-generation sequencing, and machine learning. With my long-term research goal to bridge human microbiome and human diseases, the primary goal of my research has been to methodology development involving whole metagenome sequencing, deep learning, and statistical methods to address fundamental problems pertinent to the host-microbiome interactions, especially the diagnosis and prediction of human diseases.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
