Genome Informatics with Network-based Statistical Analysis

I'm a post-doctoral researcher in genome informatics in the Laboratory of DNA Information Analysis at The University of Tokyo. My main research here ranges over the analysis, integration, and visualisation of omics data. This involves a mixture of regular collaboration with wetlab biologists from around Japan and the making of new statistical estimation methods whenever the opportunity should arise. All the while, I am actively engaged in the study of theoretical and practical questions concerning the role of a well-known process called preferential attachment in the evolution of complex networks.

I'm quite content here at my lab. It's my second home. But at the same time I'm always on the look out for a good assistant professor position in Japan or abroad. If you are reading this, and you are interested in bringing me to your department, or you know of someone who is, then please do not hesitate to contact me straightaway.

I work on both problems in the field of complex networks and the development of statistical methods for omics data analysis, integration, and visualization.
