HOME RESEARCH SOFTWARE RECOGNITIONS

Metagenomics and many other fields, such as, computational biology, marketing, engineering, business intelligence, finance, are being continuously transformed by the advent of large-scale data. Often, such large data sets cannot be analyzed or processed by a stand alone desktop computer. However, these problems can be solved by sub-dividing  large computing tasks into smaller sub-tasks and distributing them amongst many  computers. My interests are to create high-performance algorithms and user-friendly software tools that aim to bring the end-user closer to the data and the story within it,  rather than wasting time with tedious data processing steps.
