Biographical Statement:
My general interest is nutrtional genomics and metabolomics. Currently I am working on developing methods for metabolic profiling using GC x GC - qMS (two dimensional gas chromatography coupled with quadrupole mass spectrometry). We are using yeast model and investigating the genetic basis of metabolite abundance. One of my long-term interest is to apply these methods for identification of metabolic markers for different physiological conditions. Additionally, I have been working on the evolution of metabolic genes.

My major in Molecular Nutrition, and the two minors are Genomics and Applied Statistics.
