I’m a Research fellow at University of Western Australia, with a formal education in computer science, bioinformatics and quantitative genetics. My current research focuses on the development of machine learning methods to integrate high-dimensional multi-omic data to i) improve prediction accuracy of commercially important phenotype in both plants and animals and ii) understand the various factors determining biological outcomes.
Areas of Interest
• Artificial intelligence and machine learning for optimization of biological problems
• Computational methods and statistical analysis of high-throughput genomic data
• Use of functional knowledge in genomic selection
• Functional integration of GWAS and gene expression data
