Research Summary

My research has historically concentrated on developing new computing resources for the education and research environments and solving problems in medical informatics and structural biology. I emphasize the development of new computing tools, ranging from image display tools to client-server programming schemes for computer-intense programs.

I am a member of the Sequencing Informatics group of CHIBI and focus on NGS data visualization. I am also active in developing educational materials in Cell Biology and Histology.
