Research Interests

Research Experience

(May 2016-Now)
Intelligent Systems Division
Here at ISI, I work under supervision of Professor Jose-Luis Ambite. I have developed an ultra-rapid method, called I-Lash, to detect Identical-By-Descent segments of DNA in large scale data. Our work was presented at the annual ASHG meeting 2017.
I am also working on the usage of Deep Learning methods to discover new paths in genetic data.
(August 2014-May 2016)
SoftArch Lab
At SoftArch, I worked on an integrated middleware for Internet of Thing. I designed and implemented parts of a library to handle an event-based network of softwares on a range of heterogeneous devices. I also worked on event-based anomalies and security problems of Android operating system.
(2012-2014)
SMART Lab
I designed and implemented a mobile tracking system for cars that was sold to a company.

Projects

I-LASH

I-Lash is my latest project. It's an ultra-rapid tool for finding Identity By Descent tracts shared between people in a large scale DNA pool. It's results were presented at the 2017 ASHG meeting.
I-Lash will be available for download soon. And our results will be published along with it as well.

Extreme Pseudo-Sampling

Extreme Pseudo-Sampling is a new pipeline that uses Variational Autoencoders to find better ranking of genes in cancer survival analysis. This was my Deep Learning class project that got exciting!!! And will be submitted to be reviewed soon.

Personal Tracking System

In a team of 3, we designed and implemented a personal tracking system for cars and other valuable objects. This system is still maintained and has been under use for the past 4 years.
