    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    I conduct biomedical research leveraging the power of high resolution mass-spectrometry driven metabolomics (GC-MS, LC-MS), alongside other omics (genomics, proteomics, and large scale clinical data sets) to understand human metabolic disorders (cardiovascular, obesity, and Alzheimer’s disease) and health-cum-wellness (in respect to diet, aging, microbiome, and exposures) in the era of individualized/ personal/ precision medicine. Using big data from diverse -omics data sources, combined with open source tools and reproducible bioinformatic workflows to conduct research using FAIR practices, I wish to develop robust non-invasive biomarkers from human and non-human model organism biofluids and tissues through these multi-omics/ integrated-omics efforts.
