His expertise lies in bioinformatics and computational biology, image processing, pattern recognition and data mining. He has developed or significantly contributed to several influential gene network inference algorithms which have been extensively used to identify pathways and gene targets involved in a variety of diseases such as cancer, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's, obesity and diabetes etc. One of such applications was selected as the second most influential brain tumor publication in the year 2006 by the brain tumor research portal at www.braintumour.net. His recent research along this direction has been highlighted by Nature(http://www.nature.com/news/2008/080314/full/news.2008.669.html). His early research on image pattern recognition significantly contributed to several large-scale pattern recognition systems of national interest including U.S. Handwritten Address Identification System, United Kingdom Handwritten Address Identification System and Handwritten Document Comparison System. He has published 30 journal papers, including a number of high profile papers in Nature, Nature Genetics and PNAS, 1 book chapter, 24 peer reviewed conference papers and 16 abstracts.
