I have published research works in the fields of granular matter physics, network science, machine learning, user interfaces and bioinformatics. But above all I like to create useful systems. I enjoy the process of designing and implementing web based services that stand the test of time. My current project that I dedicate most my time to is an e-book on genomic data analysis:
The Biostar Handbook - it is modeled by the content on this site and is a comprehensive guide for beginning bioinformaticians.
I am the maintainer of this site:
Biostar Q&A platform more of a jack-of-all-trades: lead developer, interface designer, database manager, sys admin, dev-ops etc. whatever needs to be done.
Currently I work as a Professor of Bioinformatics at Penn State. Within that position I serve in various roles:
- Director of the Bioinformatics Consulting Center at Penn State
- Bioinformatics instructor
- Researcher and tool developer GeneTrack, and a few others
