Research Interests

My research interests are in applying machine learning and comparative genomics methods to identify new antimicrobial resistance genes and trends from public sequencing data of microbial pathogens. My aim is to develop robust computational workflows capable of extracting insights on antimicrobial resistance from genome sequences for a wide range of organisms and drugs.
