Brief Description of Research Interest :

My long term research interests involve understanding hyperactivity disorder one cell at a time and ultimately elucidate the molecular mechanism underlying complex brain illness such as ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) in humans. Intrigued by my research accomplishment, currently, I’m working in identifying genetic and epigenetic factors associated with neurological and psychiatric illness employing single-cell omics approaches and cutting-edge genome editing and sequencing technologies.
