Research Interests


I am applying principles, concepts, methods, and techniques of engineering to address biotechnological and biomedical issues.
My current research work focuses on:

  • Bioinformatics and Systems biology
  • Complex Network control
  • Machine learning
  • Complex network analytics
  • Brain Images and brain networks
  • Large-scale biological data analytics
  • Nonlinear dynamic system analytics
  • [Publications]
