Research Interests for Patients

My research group works on developing computational approaches to study the molecular basis of pathogenesis and intervention of infectious diseases, using protein sequence-structure-function relationships, comparative genomics, and drug repurposing. I am also actively engaged in training, education, and outreach. I am committed to creating and sustaining a diverse and inclusive ecosystem in data science and R for learners and professionals alike, focusing on increasing the participation of underrepresented minorities in data science and R programming. Towards this effort, I founded R-Ladies East Lansing and co-founded Women+ Data Science and AsiaR.
