About me

I'm a 6th year Computer Scince P.hD. Candidate at Indiana University, and a Research Assistant working on Metagenomics projects in Prof. Yuzhen Ye's lab. I have been working with a lot of bioinformatics datasets and tools since 2012. Not only bioinformatics, I’m also interested in Data Science and Machine Learning. In Summer 2019, I got the opportunity to do a Bioinformatics/Genomics internship at Boston Children's hospital. I enjoy working with Python, R, Perl, MySQL, AWK, bash script, bioinformatics tools, PHP, and Linux servers.
