My research is in the area of Bio-Medical Informatics. The main research in my group is to develop novel Computational Approaches (Data Integration, Statistical Analysis, Machine Learning and Data Mining) for Bioinformatics and Systems Biology research, involving:

·         Problem-oriented Research: Poster 1, Poster 2, Poster 3.

o    Bioinformatics, focus on

o          - Functional Genomics, and

o          - Cancer Bioinformatics

o    Computational Systems Biology, focus on

o          - '-omics' data fusion and integrative data mining

o          - system dynamics and behaviour modelling

o    Biomedical Image Mining

·         Method-oriented Research in Machine Learning and Data Mining

o    Ensemble Learning and Meta-Learning

o    Support Vector Machine
