My research focuses on big data analytics (metabolomics, RNAseq, microbiomics, chemoinformatics and biological networks) to understand gene-environment interactions, within the context of diet, microbiome, infectious agents and environmental chemicals. There are three main research areas: i) new-generation bioinformatics platform development; ii) transcriptome - metabolome - microbiome data integration; and iii) systems biology study on host, diet and gut microbiome interactions using a C. elegans model.
