Research Summary

I conduct research in translational bioinformatics to analyze functional and clinical data linked to human diseases, with a particular focus on skin cancer. Text and image-mining algorithms are used for extracting molecular and phenotypic data from the research literature to generate models of molecular and clinical processes. Such models guide the identification of disease-related genes or pathways from high-throughput functional data.

Specialized Terms: Molecular interaction networks, computational analysis, pathway discovery, knowledge representation; Statistical modeling and analysis; Text mining in biomedicine, term identification, information extraction
