Personal profile

Area of Expertise

My lab is broadly interested in the development and application of computational methods to solve problems in pharmaceutical sciences. We integrate pharmaceutical sciences with computer sciences, chemistry, biology, and physics to develop new biotechnologies, understand molecular mechanisms underlying diseases, and design new drugs. Specifically, we are interested in protein allostery study, computer-aided drug design, CRISPR-Cas9 technology improvement, artificial intelligence (AI) for drug discovery, and big data analysis of health disparity diseases. We extensively engage in dynamic collaborations with various experimental labs with a goal to bridge the interface of computational, experimental, and clinical research.
