Current project

Multicellular organisms have diverse cell types. Despite several studies, we still lack the characterization of different cell types, understanding of their functions, state, and diversity. Currently, single-cell technologies enable us to look into these lacking parts. In my research, I am particularly looking for method improvement and development for understanding different cell types from single-cell transcriptomics and epigenomics datasets. In order to understand how different cell types govern mutual regulation, it is also necessary to decipher gene regulatory networks governing the specific state of cells. Hence, I am also implementing mathematics and machine learning approaches to understand gene regulatory networks underlying specific cell states.
