Current Responsibilities & Activities

As the program director for data science and computational biomodelling, I manage a research portfolio of projects that develop methods and tools that enable the utilization of data science in, that utilize high-throughput (Big) data in, and that develop computational, or joint computational and laboratory approaches to model biological processes relevant to, diabetes and metabolic disease research, or any other area of disease or biology of relevance to the DEM mission.  

I am also the program director for HIRN-CBDS, HIRN-HPAP, DKnet, and co-program director for TEDDY. 

​Research Programs

Bioengineering, Biotechnology, and Imaging as applied to Diabetes, Metabolic, and Endocrine Diseases
This program supports research that is aimed at applying sophisticated, cutting-edge technologies to advance the understanding of the mechanisms that underlie diabetes and other endocrine and metabolic diseases

Diabetes Genetics and Genomics
This program advances research to identify the genetic mechanisms underlying type 1 and type 2 diabetes—and how genetic and epigenetic variation influences the metabolism of therapeutics—with an aim towards developing better treatments

Endocrine Pancreas
The Endocrine Pancreas program supports research on the basic biology, development, and function of the endocrine pancreas as well as clinical studies on islet transplantation for the treatment of type 1 diabetes

Metabolism, Energy Balance, and Obesity
This program supports research on metabolism, energy balance, and obesity
