We are a multi-disciplinary team of computational biologists and experimental scientists working in the area of Computational and Systems biology. We focus on Nutrition, Genetics, Microbiome, and Gene Regulation and their effect on health and disease. We aim to develop personalized nutrition and personalized medicine using machine learning, computational biology, probabilistic modeling, and analysis of heterogeneous high-throughput genomic and clinical data.
