My primary research interests are in developing and applying computational approaches to drug discovery, drug design, and target prediction. I have pioneered new computational approaches to determine drug actions based on chemical networks (https://services.mbi.ucla.edu/CSNAP/) and applied this method to discover new drugs inhibiting cell divisions and cancers. My postdoctoral work at Altman lab focuses on developing novel computational methods for predicting drug actions, interactions, side effects and drug repurposing. My current research at Davis lab uses high-parameter single-cell data mining combined with multi-omic integration and systems biology to identify therapeutic targets and drugs for treating pediatric cancers. By correlating low-level structural data with high-level functional biology and clinical outcomes, I will apply system-based approaches to engineer safe and effective medicine for disease treatments.
