Engineering in Bioinformatics
I want to scientifically contribute to the general understanding of the role of the gut microbiome in cardiometabolic disorders.
My research is focused on studying the gut microbial determinants in the pathophysiology of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NALFD). In our lab, we take a meta-organismal approach to understand the interactions between the gut microbial community and its host that contribute to the disease etiology.
With a background in multi-omic analysis, I am working on identifying microbiome and metabolome markers of NAFLD and characterizing individuals with NAFLD based on these markers with an aim to deliver tailored treatment.
