Research Interest:

  • The goal of research in my lab has been to study interactions between cellular proteins and conserved G-quadruplex forming regulatory motifs that can influence human gene expression. We use bioinformatics/computational tools and databases developed in our lab to conduct detailed transcriptome wide studies on the distribution patterns of G-quadruplex motifs near biologically important sites of thousands of mammalian genes.
  • Research projects in my lab particularly focus on the regulation of human genes involved in cancer, apoptosis, and neurological abnormalities, including autism, dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
  • I regularly collaborate with Mathematics and Computer Science faculty for research. Projects in my lab involve active participation by undergraduate students of the college, especially during the winter and summer breaks.
