My research interest is focused on rice genomics and evolution. I was working on the 3000 Rice Genome Project in collaboration with the International Rice Research Institute (Philippines) and the Computational Bioscience Research Center at KAUST. My main goal was to perform comparative genome and evolutionary analysis in this dataset.
