Main Research Topics

I’m designing models and algorithms for sequencing (NGS & TGS) data.

My interests mainly cover areas of metagenomics and biological information extraction from raw sequencing datasets, for non-model species. I lead two projects, SeqDigger and OmicFinder, which aim to index genomic datasets, with low environmental impacts.
