Our research group develops and applies machine learning methods for genomics. We apply these methods to various types of biological data sets, including DNA sequences, epigenetic data such as ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq and single cell data such as flow cytometry and single cell genomics. Our methods are focused on probabilistic graphical models, deep neural networks and convex and submodular optimization.


My group is currently recruiting students at all levels (undergraduate RA, Masters and PhD). If you are interested, please contact me at the email address above, including a CV and a brief summary of your research interests. Graduate applicants should also apply to the SFU CS graduate program.
