Personal profile

Personal profile

I am a Human Population Genomicist with 15 years of research experience in population genetics and computational genomics. My research interests include human genomic variations, adaptive significance and its impact to differential health risks. Currently, I investigate population-specific genetic variations and their associations with metabolic diseases. I also study natural selection and local adaptation to the extreme (desert) environment(s).

Professional Profile:

  • Accomplished scientist with all-around population health research experience in diverse international laboratory settings anchored by a strong scientific publication record.
  • Broad range of knowledge in cutting-edge next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies and related high-throughput scientific computing techniques.
  • Efficient in conducting multidisciplinary collaborative research projects involving clinicians, molecular geneticists, statisticians, and bioinformaticians.
  • Extensive leadership and teamwork experience from managing a service-oriented bioinformatics and biostatistics core facility, supervising and maintaining a sequencing unit, organizing regional and institutional NGS data analysis workshops, training students and lab technicians for DNA sequencing and downstream processing.
  • Exceptional problem solving, communication, and multi-tasking skills.
