Research Interests
I am interested in bioinformatics, molecular evolution, and molecular population genetics. Owing to many genome projects, almost infinite amount of molecular data is becoming available for us to analyze. They are filled with evolutionary footprints. My interest revolves around mining such information from sequence data, and reconstructing the evolutionary process of sequences, genes, and genomes.
