I am an Assistant Professor affiliated with BioInformatics Research Centre (BIRC) at the School of Computer Engineering, NTU. I am also an Adjunct Senior Research Scientist, at Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS). Previously I worked as a Research Scientist at National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA.

My research goal is to develop novel computational methods (algorithms, models, software, databases, etc.) to help answer biomedical questions (such as the mechanisms of cancer) critical for public health. Currently, I am focused on computational modeling of cell fate, with applications to research in stem cell and cancer.

Open positions: An open position of Research Fellow is available to work on computational systems biology on cancer cell modelling. It will start from March, 2014.
