My research interests are in the following areas:
- Network science: analysis of social & biological networks
- Algorithm development
- Computational biology
In my M.S. thesis, I did research on community detection algorithms in complex networks. Mostly, I focused on the algorithms and mathematical sides of the community detection. But, I am also interested in its applications to social networks, biological networks, and genomic sequences.
In my internship at RCSB PDB I worked on the BioCADDIE pilot project: Development of Citation and Data Access Metrics applied to RCSB Protein Data Bank and related Resources. Specifically, I worked on the construction and analysis of citation networks.
Previously, I attended CMORE summer course on Microbial Oceanography From Genomes to Biomes in 2010. I am also interested in analyzing genomics and metagenomics sequence data.
