Areas of Interest

My current work aims to understand how chromatin accessibility data can be used to predict transcription factor (TF) binding in human samples. To this end, I have been working on improving TF binding prediction using novel biologically and statistically motivated approaches. In addition to that, I have been exploring how single-based resolution chromatin accessibility data can be used to predict biophysical aspects in the nuclear environment, such as TF residence time (i.e. the time a TF is bound to DNA).
